Governor Records - Carlson, 1947-1950

Frank Carlson Administration
Jan. 13, 1947-Nov. 28, 1950

The records of Kansas Governor Frank Carlson consist of correspondence, state agency files, subject files, appointments, proclamations, messages and oversized material during his term as governor from 1947 to 1950.

Scope and Content Note

The arrangement and description of the correspondence of the Governor's office is structured according to the arrangement, duties, functions and responsibilities of the Governor and the Executive branch of the Kansas state government.

The Correspondence Series is subdivided into an Alphabetical File; an Appointments File (because the Governor spent a great deal of time appointing people to official government boards, departments and other government offices); a State Agencies File; and a Subject File.

The Alphabetical File contains routine correspondence from either the common, concerned citizen about unimportant subject matter; or from important correspondents, arranged by name.

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.

In nearly all record groups of Governor's Correspondence, there are oversize items. Oversize items are inventoried in the back of each register, giving their original folder location and the oversize storage location where they have been transferred. When examining the folders that held oversize items, the researcher will find a transfer form, identifying the item, and giving information on its oversize location.

Agency Sketch

The office of the Governor of the State of Kansas was established by the State Constitution of 1859 (the Wyandotte Constitution).

According to constitutional mandate, some of the more important duties, functions, responsibilities and bailiwicks of the Kansas Governor are as follows:

The supreme executive power of the State shall be vested in a Governor, who shall see that the laws are faithfully executed.

The Executive Department shall consist of a Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, Auditor, Treasurer, Attorney General, and Superintendent of Public Instruction, who shall be chosen by the electors of the State at the time and place of voting for members of the Legislature, and shall hold their offices for the term of two years from the second Monday in January, next after their election, and until their successors are elected and qualified.

He may require information in writing from the officers of the Executive Department upon any subject relating to their respective duties.

He may, on extraordinary occasions, convene the Legislature by proclamation, and shall, at the commencement of every session, communicate in writing such information as he may possess in reference to the condition of the State, and recommend such measures as he may deem expedient.
All commissions shall be issued in the name of the State of Kansas; signed by the Governor, counter-signed by the Secretary of State, and sealed with the great seal.

For a complete list of gubernatorial duties, see the Kansas State Constitution (1859), Article I -- Executive.

Biographical Sketch

Frank Carlson, the son of Swedish immigrants, was born on his father's farm in Concordia, Kansas, on January 23, 1893. Frank grew up on the farm that his parents established and attended local schools around Concordia, including Concordia Normal and Business College. Later, he attended Kansas State College in Manhattan, majoring in agriculture.

When the U. S. became involved in the war in Europe in 1917, Carlson saw action in France, at first as a private. By the end of the war, he held the rank of private first class.

After the war, Carlson returned to Concordia and bought his own farm, financed with a loan. During his first growing season, Carlson cultivated what he called "stream lined" wheat, a sturdy grain that would be able to endure the hot Kansas weather. His experiment proved successful and he sold his grain as seed for three dollars a bushel, enabling him to pay off his loan.

Carlson entered politics in 1928, running for Representative in the Kansas State Legislature. He won this election and was re-elected to that office in 1930. During that time in the Kansas House, Carlson concentrated on tax legislation.

In 1932, Carlson was one of the prominent figures in managing Alf Landon's gubernatorial campaign. Landon was accused of grand-standing for oil interests during the campaign. Carlson successfully directed matters to a victory for Landon. Following the election, Carlson was praised in the newspapers as establishing a new precedent of ethics in Kansas politics. Carlson's success entitled him to first choice to any post in Landon's administration. Instead, Carlson declined any political appointments, and returned to managing his farm in Concordia.

Carlson re-entered politics in 1934, this time campaigning for a seat in the U. S. House of Representatives. He won this election, as well as four more for the seat representing the Sixth Kansas district. While in Congress, Carlson concentrated his efforts on a simplified Federal tax code, as well as natural flood control, water conservation and agricultural aid. Generally, Carlson voted against New Deal measures. His previous experience in tax legislation secured Carlson a seat on the House Ways and Means Committee, which initiates all tax legislation. Carlson is best remembered for introducing the "pay as you go" income tax plan in 1943.

The plan, which would have canceled the taxpayer's liability on his 1942 income and credited the collection to his obligation for 1943 -- enabling him to pay henceforth on his current instead of previous year's income -- became the most strenuously fought issue confronting the Seventy-eighth Congress.1

Ultimately, the bill failed, as it was strongly opposed by the Democratic majority in the House, as well as by the Roosevelt Administration.

By 1946, Carlson returned to the political scene in Kansas, campaigning for governor. He beat the former governor, Harry H. Woodring, the Democratic nominee. Woodring, who had been governor from 1931 to 1933, campaigned primarily on the Prohibition issue. Carlson, on the other hand, was virtually silent on Prohibition, feeling that the issue should be decided by local referenda. Carlson's campaign logged over 16,000 miles, and went through each of the 105 counties in the state. Primarily, Carlson campaigned against what he termed "a Truman-perpetrated New Deal Administration in Washington."2 Carlson's campaign style was shy and unassuming. He frequently stated "There are no self-made men. It is your friends who make you what you are."3

Carlson served nearly two complete terms as governor. He resigned in November of 1949 in order to fulfill other political aspirations.

While Carlson was in office as governor, he appointed Harry Darby to fill the U. S. Senate seat vacated by the death of Clyde Reed in 1949. Also taking place that year were elections, including an election for the U. S. Senate. Carlson campaigned for the Senate, and won. Upon Carlson's election to the Senate, and resignation from the Governor's Office, Frank Lester Hagaman, who was Lieutenant Governor, was sworn into the Governor's Office on November 28, 1946. Darby had resigned his seat, enabling Carlson, just elected to the Senate to become the senior senator almost immediately. Thus he would out rank other freshmen senators who were recently elected, as he was. Carlson won two more campaigns for U. S. Senate in 1956 and in 1962. During his tenure as senator, Carlson was instrumental in recruiting Dwight D. Eisenhower as a candidate for the Republican Party, during the 1952 election.4

In all, Carlson ran for elective office a total of thirteen times and he won every election. He is the only Kansas statesman to have served in the Kansas Legislature, Governor's Office and both houses of Congress; making him one of the most successful politicians in Kansas history.

In his personal life, Carlson married Alice Frederickson on August 26, 1919. With her, they had one daughter: Eunice Marie Carlson, and a foster son: Millard Ross.

A devout Baptist, Carlson was an active organizer of the President's Annual Prayer Breakfasts.

In Kansas, Carlson received a wide variety of honors and awards, including the designation of "favorite son" candidate in the 1968 Republican National Convention. Back in Concordia, the local library was named after him. In addition, Wichita State University named a lecture series after him. In Topeka, the Federal Court Building is named after him.

Administrative Sketch

Once in office, Frank Carlson, the soft-spoken governor from Concordia, quickly took action to present the State Legislature with an agenda of sweeping change across the state. Nationally, it was a time of great change and those changes were affecting the state of Kansas as a microcosm. World War II had just ended. Millions of servicemen were returning from the war front. Huge sums of money that had been spent on the war effort could now be re-directed to civilian causes. In addition, the war pulled the American economy out of the Depression of the 1930s, and now America was enjoying a wave of prosperity the likes of which it had never seen before. Among the remarks Carlson made in his first inaugural address were:

"It is too obvious that all over the nation a strange and inverted prosperity prevails. It is almost spurious in its economic effect because it is born of destruction.

Can Kansas, the heart of America from almost any viewpoint lead this transition into peace and transform our new-found productive strength for the common welfare, so that it may bring a fuller life for us instead of ruin for others?

Either we must go forward in a dynamic peace of progress in the arts, skills and sciences, or we most surely will be pushed backward as we fearfully cling to the gains of the past. Surely we shall not be foolish stewards content to bury our talents.

To this cause of progress, therefore, I pledge every power that I command, however frail they may be, in the service of my state."1

To help facilitate positive change in an era of change, Carlson intended to appoint what he called a "Little Hoover Commission," an agency which would examine the whole state government bureaucratic body to find and make preparation to eliminate duplicate bureaus. Carlson's "Little Hoover Commission" was modeled after the Hoover Commissions which reformed the Executive branch of the federal government. Mr. Joseph McDonald wrote to the governor offering his opinions of Carlson's reform idea.

"Dear Governor:
..I am of the opinion that a committee of this kind could accomplish more for the people of this state than perhaps we now anticipate. During 1937 and 1938, as a member of the Legislative Council, I was on a committee that was appointed for the purpose of studying consolidation of various branches of the state government.

Sincerely,

Joseph McDonald"
________

"Dear Joe:

Many thanks for your kind letter of December 19 in regard to the creation of a "Little Hoover Commission" for analyzing our state government.

It is my intention to select a bi-partisan committee of outstanding citizens interested in the future welfare of our state."2

A major part of Carlson's administration concerned the returning servicemen, and providing benefits for them. The 1949 Legislature adopted a concurrent resolution in order to expedite proper treatment for returning veterans:

A Resolution relating to a committee to study and make recommendations relative to a bonus for Kansas veterans of World War II.

Whereas, Governor Frank Carlson, in his message to the legislature on January 12, 1949, recommended the appointment of a committee of legislators and veterans to study a state bonus for World War II veterans; and

Whereas, the governor further recommended that such committee should report its determinations in ample time so that the legislature may have the opportunity of submitting a bonus to the voters at the next general election.

Be it further resolved, That such committee shall make a study of the various phases of a state bonus for veterans of World War II and report its determinations and recommendations to the Senate and House of Representatives of the 1949 legislature within thirty days after its first meeting.3

In addition, Carlson began programs to substantially increase building construction at Kansas' universities, highways (including greatly expanded policing of those highways), and state office buildings. Carlson recognized that a major highway building program would not materialize overnight. Instead, a plan of transportation priorities would have to be developed over many years. In an informal message to the 1947 Legislature, the governor stated:

"After much thought and many suggestions from legislators, I have come to the conclusion that we are in urgent need of a long-range highway program and a corresponding long-range highway revenue program. On the one hand we should determine our highway needs.

I believe the legislature should provide for a highway fact-finding committee of representative citizens to study these problems, conduct the necessary surveys, and submit a considered, comprehensive report to the governor and the legislature at the 1949 session..."4

As the previous twenty years were years of austerity -- because of the depression and the war -- Kansas, as well as the rest of the country, were ready to rebuild and expand. In an address to the Kansas Auto Dealers Association, Carlson stated,

"It is a recognized fact that there are matchless resources in Kansas awaiting only the magic touch of free energy and good American ingenuity to fashion them for the service of the people...

There can be no question but the outlook for the future of industry in Kansas shows bright promise of continued expansion. I am sure that the great resources of this favored section have been only slightly tapped, and the years to come will bring new enterprises and prosperity to our people.

It is also imperative that the natural resources of the state be developed to the fullest extent, and this is an obligation of industry, which must create the incentive to fabricate for universal use the products of the farms as well as the mineral riches stored by Nature."5

One of Carlson's proudest accomplishments during his administration was the advances made in providing treatment for the mentally ill in Kansas. It was Dr. William C. Menninger who first brought the issue of treatment for the mentally ill to the governor's attention. In a letter dated August 30, 1948, Dr. Menninger remarked,

"You may recall our sitting together at a Forum last October when our Foundation held its annual meeting. I have wanted to talk to you sometime because of my concern about the state hospitals... The situation in our state hospitals is acute -- I might even say it is desperate -- and the needs are extensive. I don't even know when the Republican convention is being held, but I wish this matter might receive consideration as one of the important planks in the platform."

Carlson replied:

"...Your letter was not only timely, but met my full approval."6

Two years later, the governor boasted in one of his radio addresses:

"The Governor's Conference last year made a detailed study of the mental hosptials of the nation, and this report was released at the Conference two weeks ago at White Sulpher Springs, West Virginia.

It was interesting to note in this report that Kansas jumped from fortieth place to eleventh in nation-wide ratings on money now available for the care and treatment of its mentally ill. This advancement was made as a result of the splendid program approved by the 1949 legislature for placing our mental hospitals on a full treatment program."7

The legislature approved an amendment repealing prohibition, which voters endorsed in the election of 1948. On March 8, 1949 Carlson signed the Kansas liquor control bill repealing a dry law that had been on the State's books since 1880. Mr. E. E. Lipperd wrote to the governor, opinionating,

"As for Kans. and the liquor question I hope you may see fit to use all your influence to prevent any plan of local option, as that would leave it just as bad as it has been before, and just as fine, if not better for the bootleggers, as they would only have to bootleg from county to county instead of from state to state, and it is the bootleggers we want to get rid of. I do not believe hardly anybody wants to see open saloons..."

Carlson replied:

"While I am personally dry, I do feel that the people of Kansas are entitled to a vote on the question. After all, we are living in a democracy and our citizens are entitled to freedom of expression. If the present situation were reversed and the state now wet, I would feel that the drys were entitled to the same consideration."8

A happenstance occuring during Carlson's administration which would later come back to bear fruit for the governor was the vacancy in the U. S. Senate made by the death of Senator Clyde Reed. Carlson had to appoint a new senator to replace Reed. Hundreds wrote to the governor to recommend different people to fill in after Reed's death. Carlson ultimately decided to appoint Harry Darby, a industrialist/businessman from Kansas City. One of the people advising that Carlson appoint Darby was a lawyer from Emporia, who wrote:

"Dear Governor Carlson:

As I see the picture, there is one man who has done more for the state of Kansas than any other man now living, and that man is Harry Darby, our State and National Chairman. He is a work horse, a man who can accomplish what he sets out to gain; You will find that you will need him in the tomorrows of your career.

Respectfully Yours,

Owen S. Samuel"9

This appointment turned out to be more fortuitous than anyone could have known. Soon after Frank Carlson won his election to the U. S. Senate in the 1950 election, Darby resigned his seat. The following governor, Frank Hagaman, appointed Carlson to fill the seat that Darby vacated, immediately making him a senior senator, and outranking all of the other newly elected senators.
