Governor Harris visiting Upper Sandusky
Description: Ohio Governor Andrew Harris in front of the Wyandot County Courthouse in Upper Sandusky, Ohio, September 30, 1908. Andrew Lintner Harris (1835-1915), nicknamed "The Farmer-Statesman," was one of the heroes of the Battle of Gettysburg, and served as the 44th Governor of Ohio between the years of 1906 and 1909. Harris was born in Milford Township, Ohio, and was educated in the local schools. He graduated from Miami University in 1860 and enlisted as a private in the Union Army. Photograph by Harry Evan Kinley (1882-1969), a native of Upper Sandusky. Kinley was active in local events and organizations, and spent his professional career as a clerk at his father's department store, and later as a travelling salesman for the Marion Paper & Supply Company (1934-1962). He was also an avid lifelong photographer, and the bulk of the Harry Kinley Collection is comprised of glass plate negatives documenting the Kinley family, the city of Upper Sandusky and Wyandot County and surrounding areas.
