Ida Bishop Lewelling, the wife of Kansas' first Populist governor, was an ardent reformer and worked diligently with her husband, Lorenzo, in his campaigns. She remained at the family home in Wichita during her husband's term, but the governor's daughter, Jessie, moved to Topeka with her father and served as his official hostess. They lived at the Chesterfield Hotel on Kansas Avenue.
