Biography/History

Born in the small town of Middletown near Louisville, Kentucky, on January 2, 1908, Lawerence Winchester Wetherby developed a love for the outdoors and an appreciation for agricultural matters. Wetherby was the fourth child of Samuel David and Fanny (Yenowine) Wetherby. As a youth he joined the Boy Scouts and began a lengthy affiliation with the Middletown Methodist Church.

In public school the young Wetherby was active in Junior Agriculture Club (the forerunner of 4-H), exhibiting hogs and corn at the State Fair and completing a short agricultural course at the University of Kentucky. Both the State Fair and the University were life-longs interests of Wetherby. At Anchorage High School he participated in football, basketball, and baseball before graduating in 1925.

In preparation for his career in politics, Wetherby entered the University of Louisville to study law. While in college he continued his participation in football and basketball. In 1929 Wetherby earned an LL.B. from the University of Louisville School of Law. On April 24, 1930, he married Helen Dwyer of Louisville; they had three children, Lawerence Jr. born in 1931, Suzanne born in 1932, and Barbara Juel born in 1935.

From 1933 to 1937 and again in 1942 he was part-time attorney for the Jefferson County Juvenile Court. In March of 1943 he was appointed the first trial commissioner of Jefferson County Juvenile Court. During the 1930s and 1940s, Wetherby served on the Anchorage District School Board, the Health and Welfare Council Children's Agency, and the Board of Maryhurst School for Girls.

In 1947 Wetherby decided to run for Lieutenant Governor of Kentucky. He was elected over Republican Orville M. Howard (367,836 to 271,893). As Lieutenant Governor Wetherby presided over the Kentucky Senate and served on the Committee of Committees which handles the assignment of bills and makes committee appointments. He also planned and participated in the Legislative Research Commission and state budget.

In 1950 Governor Earle C. Clements left his post to Wetherby after having run successfully for the United States Senate. Wetherby was sworn in as the 48th Governor of the Commonwealth of Kentucky by Chief Justice Porter Sims on November 27th. In 1951 Wetherby was elected to a full term as Governor, defeating Republican Eugene Siler (346,345 to 288,014).

Wetherby called a special session of the General Assembly in 1951 to increase both teachers' salaries and benefits to the needy and to government employees. Later, he created a separate Department of Mental Health, supported enactment of the first state law to regulate strip mining, and began construction of toll roads and a new state fairgrounds. Improvements in education came with a constitutional amendment known as the Minimum Foundation Program, permitting the allocation of education funds to school districts on the basis of need rather than the number of pupils. In 1954 and 1955, as chairman of the Southern Governors' Conference, Wetherby supported the Supreme Court's school desegregation order and urged its peaceful implementation.

After leaving office on December 13, 1955, Wetherby went into private law practice. In 1956 he ran for the U.S. Senate but was defeated by Republican John Sherman Cooper, 538,505 to 473,140. In 1964-1966 he was a member of a state assembly to revise the 1890 Kentucky Constitution. He served in the state senate in 1966 and 1968 and was its president pro-tem during the first term. In retirement, Wetherby served as a consultant to Brighton Engineering.

Scope and Content

The Lawrence W. Wetherby Collection largely consists of the records of Wetherby while Governor of the Commonwealth of Kentucky (1950-1955). The Collection also contains the Executive Orders of Wetherby's predecessor, Earle C. Clements, as well as some Wetherby records prior to and following his term as Governor. Unfortunately, many of Wetherby's papers were lost in the transition from office, and the Wetherby Collection represents only part of the records generated by Wetherby while in office. The primary series with letters addressed to Wetherby is the Subject File Series. However, it is evident from file categories used in the Correspondence Series (copies of outgoing letters) that there were at one time many more headings than those found in the existing Subject File Series.

The collection is arranged in series by type of materials (clippings, photos, press releases, etc.) Within most series the arrangement is chronological. However, the Correspondence, Subject File, and Appointment Books/Published Materials Series are alphabetized. See the series descriptions for further details on arrangement. In addition to the types of materials mentioned in the series titles, the Wetherby Collection also contains campaign literature, political cartoons, and election returns (Subject File Series, Campaign).

For further access to the Wetherby Collection see the manuscript catalog located in the reference area of the University of Kentucky Special Collections Division located at King Library North. Wetherby letters found in other collections may be found under "Wetherby, Lawrence Winchester" in the catalog. Letters to Wetherby by prominent individuals may be found by name of sender in the catalog. The existing papers indicate the following politicians regularly communicated with Wetherby:

Carl D. Perkins, U.S. Congress Brent Spence, U.S. Congress John C. Watts, U.S. Congress Earle C. Clements, U.S. Senator Alben W. Barkley, U.S. Senator and Vice-President Thomas R. Underwood, U.S. Senator

State Governors: Herman E. Talmadge, GA George N. Craig, IN Adlai E. Stevenson, IL Leroy Collins, FL Frank G. Clement, TN Frank J. Lausche, OH Dwight D. Eisenhower, U.S. President Carl J. Ruh, KY Legislator Walter R. Moorman, KY Legislator Louis W. Arnett, KY Legislator Emerson Beauchamp, Lt. Governor of KY Alvarado E. Funk, KY Attorney General J.D. Buckman, KY Attorney General Bruce Underwood, KY Commissioner of Health Henry E. Ward, KY Commissioner of Conservation

In Governor Wetherby's absence many of his letters and much of his day to day routine was handled by his executive secretary, Edward A. Farris, administrative assistant George H. Kerler, or office secretary Rosalind Niemeier. In the case of official matters the Lt. Governor filled in for the Governor. The Wetherby papers demonstrate both practices by the signatures on outgoing correspondence. Though the typist's initials do not appear on correspondence, sources indicate that secretaries Cattie Lou Miller and Addie Dean (Stokley) were responsible for typing, filing, occasionally writing, and maintaining the orderly office procedures evident in the papers. Others who worked in the office include Bobby Crosswhite, Catherine Major and Lidwyna Thompson.

Additional Wetherby records may be found in the Governor's Record Group (mostly bills signed) and other executive branch record groups at the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives, located in Frankfort, Kentucky. Most of the speeches and many of the letters of Wetherby have been published with appropriate annotation in The Public Papers of Governor Lawrence W. Wetherby, 1950-1955 edited by John E. Kleber (Lexington, KY, 1983).

Clippings Series
Scope and Contents note:

The Clippings Series contain newspaper clippings such as editorials, news articles and campaign ads as well as come correspondence during the administration of Governor Wetherby and in a few instances Governor Clements. The correspondence includes pink carbon copies of letters from Governor Clements to the press. These letters are also found in the Earle C. Clements Collection. The clippings, taken from a variety of newspapers, are marked as to origin and date. They are filed chronologically. Frequently parts of the clippings are highlighted in red pencil.

For a more complete and well indexed group of articles on the Wetherby administration from two Louisville newspapers see the Scrapbook Series. There are also clippings in the Oversized Materials Series as well as scattered clippings appearing in other series. The clippings have been separated by sheets of acid-free paper for preservation purposes.

Correspondence Series
Scope and Contents note:

The Correspondence Series contains green carbon copies of outgoing correspondence from Wetherby's office. The series is arranged chronologically and thereunder alphabetically by name of correspondent. The subject of the letters are handwritten in the corner of most of the copies. Because much of the Subject File is missing, the Correspondence File is in many cases the only record of certain letters. For example, legislative and political headings are noted in the Correspondence Series, but the first carbon copy and the incoming letter (usually filed by subject) for these headings do not exist. For those headings that do exist in the Subject File Series, the Correspondence File serves as a name index by year. Only the January 1956 folder contains both incoming and outgoing correspondence.

Scope and Contents note:

This series contains the photos used by Governor Wetherby's office for publicity purposes. Most of the photos are eight by ten inches, black and white. Some of the photos are captioned and some have information such as names of persons in the photo, place taken, and photographer on the back. Some prominent persons in the photos include Alben Barkley, Earle C. Clements, Mrs. Helen Wetherby, and "Doc" Beauchamp. One group of photos reveals that Wetherby socialized with A.B. "Happy" Chandler early in his administration. In some of the photos subject's faces have been removed. There is one newspaper clipping from 1953. The photos have been separated by sheets of paper for preservation purposes. To facilitate research the photographs have been arranged chronologically and thereunder alphabetically by subject.

Speech Series
Scope and Contents note:

The Speech Series contains typed and occasionally printed copies of Governor Wetherby's legislative messages, addresses to civic and governmental organizations, campaign speeches, introductions, and media presentations on topics such as sports, the state budget, education, mental health, labor, and administrative accomplishments. The speeches, which are all dated, are arranged chronologically. In addition to the speeches the series contains related news releases, clippings, correspondence, and speeches by others. Most of the materials used in the preparation of speeches are found at the end of the series.

The Governor received assistance in speech writing from his executive secretary, Edward A. Farris, and his administrative assistant, George Kerler. Unfortunately, there are no early drafts of speeches and only a few handwritten modifications of the texts to indicate how the speeches developed. For additional public statements by Wetherby see the Press Release Series, Subject File (Campaign), and the Executive Orders Series. Also included in the Speech Series are a few addresses from Wetherby's 1956 campaign for the Senate.
