Manuscripts cannot be used for publication without regard for common law literary rights, copyright laws and the laws of libel. It is the responsibility of the researcher and his/her publisher to obtain permission to publish. Scholars and students who eventually plan to have their work published are urged to make inquiry regarding overall restrictions on publication before initial research.
This collection contains 15 letters written to Myra McHenry during the years 1900 to 1907. The correspondents include C. U. and Comell McHenry, Carry A. Nation, A. T. Ayres, and J. L. Rogers among others. An activist in the early temperance movement in Kansas, McHenry staged street corner lectures, published a newspaper and many pamphlets, and was arrested frequently for her aggressive tactics.
