Edmund G. Ross Collection

Edmund G RossManuscript Collection No. 491

 

AnchorIntroduction

The Edmund G. Ross collection was donated to the Kansas State Historical Society in 1944 by Mrs. Lillian Ross Leis. There are no restrictions on use of the collection.

Biography

Edmund G. Ross was born near Ashland, Ohio, on December 7, 1826, the third of fourteen children. At the age of eleven he was apprenticed to Henry C. Grey, owner of the Huron (Ohio) Commercial Advertiser, and began a lifelong involvement in newspaper publishing. In 1841 he moved to Sandusky, Ohio, to work with his brother, Sylvester, who owned the Sandusky Mirror. In 1848 Ross married Fannie Lathrop.

Ross moved to Milwaukee in 1852 where he worked on the Milwaukee Free Democrat and the Milwaukee Daily Sentinel. Incited by events in Kansas Territory, he came to Kansas with his family in 1856 under the Free State (antislavery) banner. He joined the Free State army, and changed his political party affiliation from the Democrats to Republicans, where his sympathies lay. He became involved in politics, being a delegate to the Wyandotte Constitutional Convention. He also continued to pursue interests in various Kansas newspapers, owning part of the Kansas Tribune (Topeka) from 1856 to 1858, and establishing the Kansas State Record in 1859.

During the Civil War Ross served in Company E of the 11th Kansas Cavalry. In 1866 he was appointed by the governor to fill the unexpired United States Senate term of James Lane, who had committed suicide. Ross served in the Senate until 1871. He is best remembered as the man who cast the deciding vote against the impeachment of President Andrew Johnson. Reviled by Republicans and Kansas citizens for this vote, Ross became disillusioned with Republican policies, and left the party in 1872. From 1871 to 1882 he pursued his newspaper interests in Kansas.

A sojourn to New Mexico in 1882 revitalized Ross’s health, convincing him to move to the territory permanently. In 1885 he was appointed territorial governor. He served in this position for four years. In 1889 Ross passed the New Mexico bar and spent the remainder of his life practicing law and writing. Years after the Johnson impeachment trial people began to change their minds about the significance of Ross’s actions, and tributes to his courage in the face of intense political pressure were offered. General Hugh Cameron of Lawrence visited Ross in New Mexico carrying testimonials of good will from Kansas citizens in 1907. Ross died May 9, 1907.

Scope and Content

The Edmund G. Ross manuscript collection consists of correspondence, biographical sketches, resolutions, and miscellaneous papers in one box. An inventory to the original donation is located in folder one of the collection. This inventory includes a listing of most of the correspondence contained in the collection, plus clippings, pamphlets, and genealogical materials that were either transferred to the Kansas State Historical Society’s library collection or discarded. Patrons are advised that this inventory does not accurately reflect the current holdings of the Kansas State Historical Society’s Library and Archives Division.

The Society also holds microfilmed Papers, 1885-1889, of Ross’s tenure as governor of New Mexico Territory (microfilm MS 794-MS 796). This microfilm-produced by the State Records Center and Archives, New Mexico Commission of Public Records-is available on interlibrary loan from the Kansas State Historical Society.
