From Hutchinson News, 2/4/1942: Farmer Ends Own Life--Harry Blaine Often Threatened Action

Harry M. Blaine, about 54, long time resident of Hayes township, died at his farm home this morning an hour after he shot himself in the right temple with a 410 gauge shotgun.

Thomas Blaine, a son, told Sheriff Guy Aukerholz he had been away from the farmstead for a short time and had just returned when he heard a shot and found his father injured in the farmyard cave, a few feet south of the house.

Coroner H.M. Steward said it was a clear case of suicide. Members of the family said Blaine had talked of killing himself, because of ill health. Today he had planned to go to Texas to visit a daughter but said this morning that he was too sick to make the trip and would take his life instead, officers were told. Members of the family reasoned with him and thought he had been dissuaded.

Part of his head was blown off by the shotgun blast and he was not conscious after the shooting, which occurred at 9 a.m. The residence is 24 miles west and one mile south of Hutchinson.

Survivors include his widow, another son, Liland Blaine of Preston, and several daughters.

From Hutchinson News, 2/7/1942: Harry Blaine
