Harry Hines Woodring, 1890- 1967Harry Hines Woodring was born in Elk City, Kansas, and was educated in city and county schools. At sixteen he began work as a janitor in the First National Bank of Neodesha, Kansas; moved up to become vice president and owner of the bank. He enlisted as a private and was later commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Tank Corps in World War I and was elected department commander of the American Legion in Kansas. He was elected governor of Kansas, 1931, and served to 1933; served as Assistant Secretary of War, 6 April 1933-25 September 1936, with supervision over procurement matters; served as Secretary of War, 25 September 1936-20 June 1940. He projected the recommendations of his predecessor for increasing the strength of the Regular Army, National Guard, and Reserve Corps; directed a revision of mobilization plans to bring personnel and procurement into balance; stressed the need to perfect the initial (peacetime) protective force. Returning to private life he ran unsuccessfully for governor of Kansas, 1946, and for the Democratic nomination for that post, 1956.

This is my second cousin five times removed. lol I have a picture of him with John Nance Garner and Franklin D. Roosevelt on their 1932 campaign in Topeka. He was born 1887 not 1890. He was a son of Hines W. Woodring.
