The Value and Uses of Historical Societies.
An address deluered at the old settlers
incctiug at Lawrence, Kansas, September
2d, 1854, ly F. V. Baker, president of the
Kansas State Historical Society:
The value of anything is generally
determined b it's usefullncss, and if
the latter is settled the question of
value is settled.
Historical societies arc valuable if
history is of value. If it is of any
service to us to know what has been
Cone in the world, in our country, in
our state, in our county or town, then
history i valuable. Nobody disputes
the value of .history and its study.
These have been recognized in every
age and by every people laying any
claims to "civilization and enlighten
ment. Any means which tends to Ihe pre
servation of the material from which
history is wirtten i of value, and it is
more diflicult to tell what is not valu
able as historical material, than to tcil
w hat is. There is, I suppose, hardly a
scrap of written or printed paper on
cat Hi to-day, which will not be. one
bundled years trom now, of historical
value. Ihe proceedings of this meet
ing, titty years from now, will be read
with moie absorbingiutercst than will
mark their parual in the daily papers
Any means, then, 'which can be used
to preserve the record of what we do
ami say here, and of w hat men are do
ing anil saying of a public character,
all over this slate i of value.
II has been found that historical ma
terial can be bet preserved through
the agency of a government. The great
storehouses of historical information,
the world over, are government ar

the United State, goes to Washing

The actual value of thec cannot be

paper ollice in a hundred ha a vault
sutHcient to preserve its files in cae of

has a set of files dating from the es
tablishment of tho newspaper itself.

State Historical society devoted itself
to nothing' else than the collection and
preservation of these Kansas news
papers, it would a huudrcd times re
pay the State all that it has cost.
I hav c briefly gouc over this subject
iu a very general way. All of you
hive had, or will have, an opporluuity
to eo for vourselve I have v et to
meet an intelligent person, resident or
uon-reuleiit. who did not av, after
examination, that the eolection was of
great value to the state, the Historical
Society, and it laborious and enthu

The Hi-torical society W corpora
tion, so is the state but the i-ociety'
rooms arc the repository of families,
of individuals. More than one father
in his proud sorrow, !as sent Ihe
cvord of his soldier son to hang for
evtir a memorial of his bravery. And
thu5 wc keep alive the spirit and the
mute record of patriotism. In time
grandsons and great-grandsons will
come to look at these relic, and what
is deemed silver now. will be gold
then. Wc value what wc have gath
ered, but it will be worth ten-fcld
more to those who shall come after us.
Let us, then, cherish tae State His
torical society and appreciate the val
ue of its work, and, now that it is
known that its cost, measured by the
growing wealth of this great state, is
a mere trifle, let our legitlaturc give it
without "rudgiug or needless discus
sion. The people have never com
plained of legislative extravagance iu
this direction and they never will,
while the services of the sociaty con
tinue what they are and cost no more.
