John H. Crawford papers on the Kansas Court of Industrial Relations
John H. Crawford was Commissioner of Labor and Industry when the Kansas Court of Industrial Relations was founded in January 1920 in response to a coal miners' strike of 1919. The Kansas Court of Industrial Relations Act set up a 3 person board to settle labor disputes. The Court was abolished in 1925 after the United States Supreme Court overturned some of its rulings and curtailed its powers. This collection includes a letter, 2 addresses and a plan by the International Harvester Company to assist with industrial relations between management and employees.
