Scope and Content

Scope and content: These letters, spanning 1885 to 1888, are from colleges, organizations, and state offices regarding invitations to Kansas Governor John Martin. Colleges, organizations, and state offices wrote inviting Martin to commencements, events, societal meetings, dedications, reunions, and celebrations. Some letters also requested an address with the visit. Martin was fortunate to have acquired upon his inauguration, in 1885, a state of affairs that was persistent in prosperous economic growth, and city and town expansion. But, all that boom and extravagance changed in his last year of office, 1888, when conditions gave way to severe drought and an economic recession.
