Scope and Content

Scope and content: The Correspondence Series is subdivided into an Alphabetical File; an Appointments File; a State Agencies File; and a Subject File.

The State Agencies File contains routine correspondence to and from nearly all of the bureaus of the state government. This is the appropriate subseries for research of state agency activities and history.

The Subject File contains a wide array of files on any and every important subject matter at the time.

Researchers investigating important issues of any given era in Kansas' history (or national history) should examine the Subject Files of the Governors' Correspondence.

Unfortunately, there was a great deal of documentation from the Huxman Administration that never made it from the governor's office to the state archives. This record group consists of less than two cubic feet of records. Scholars researching this administration will have to delve into many other records and primary sources in order to form a complete picture of the administration and the times of Governor Huxman.
