The Leonardville Monitor, Leonardville, Kansas, Thursday January 26, 1888

This article tells us about Mr. W. McCully, who worked for the Children’s Aid Society. Mr. McCully was a local agent – meaning that instead of living in New York, he lived in Kansas. This enabled him to find better communities and homes for children coming to Kansas by orphan train, made it easier to arrange trips to the area, and made it easier to check up on the children after they were placed.
