Item Description
  Letter, W. F. M. Arny to Governor [John White] Geary
Author: Arny, W F. M. (William Frederick Milton), 1813-1881
Date: December 8, 1856

This broadside of a letter by W. F. M. Arny was written to Governor Geary about the need for education in Kansas. Arny, an agent with the National Kansas Committee, proposed the creation of three funds: a university fund, a seminary fund, and a common school fund. Within the university structure, he proposed a normal school, an agricultural and horticultural school, and a mechanical school. He thought that it would be best to ask Congress for land for schools.
