[ARCHIVED] Directory of State Government Employees in About 1913

The original item was published from October 24, 2018 9:50 AM to October 24, 2018 9:53 AM

The State Library of Kansas' KGI Online Library has added a directory of Executive and Judicial Branch employees who worked in the Kansas State Capitol complex during the tenure of Governor George H. Hodges (1913-1915) . What's cool about this eight page directory is that it includes most everybody who worked in the building. Clerks, agency heads, janitors, commissioners, stenographers... All are listed with an address (usually their residence).

If you have relatives who were living in Topeka during this time period check out the directory and see if one of them might have been working in the State Capitol. We're unsure of the year of publication but determined that it was printed during the Hodges administration because of the officials listed.

You'll find this directory at the State Library of Kansas' KGI Online Library:
