Photo: Arthur Capper

An informal portrait of Kansas Governor Arthur Capper, 1865-1951, as he signs the "Bone Dry Law," just passed by the Kansas Legislature. The new law prohibited possession of liquor within the state, and ended direct shipments of liquor to Kansans from out-of-state vendors. Capper, a native of Garnett, Kansas, served Kansas as Governor, 1915-1919, and as a U. S. Senator, 1919-1949.
