Kenneth S. Wherry, 1892-1951 [RG3559.AM]


RG3559.AM:  Kenneth S. Wherry, 1892-1951

Papers:  1938-1952
Pawnee City, Neb.:  Lawyer, U.S. Senator
Size:  35.0 cu.ft.


Kenneth Spicer Wherry was born at Liberty, Nebraska, on February 28, 1892, the son of David Emery and Jessie Comstock Wherry. He received his education in the public schools of Pawnee City and graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1914. In 1915, Wherry studied business administration at Harvard University and began a business and legal career shortly thereafter opening his law offices at Wymore and Humboldt, Nebraska. From 1918 to 1930 he was also a distributor of automobiles, farm implements and furniture. He later became a licensed embalmer, maintaining offices in Nebraska and Kansas.

Wherry began his political career as a member of the City Council of Pawnee City and served two terms as mayor of that community from 1929-1931 and 1938-1943. Wherry also served as a member of the Nebraska State Senate in 1929 and 1931. In 1933 he ran for governor of Nebraska as a Republican but was defeated. Two years later he was defeated as a candidate for United States Senator.

In 1939 Wherry became State G.O.P. Chairman and in 1942 won a surprising victory over incumbent U.S. Senator, George Norris for the Senate seat. He became the first freshman Senator to secure the important post of Senate Whip. Senator Wherry easily won re-election in 1948, and the following year became Republican floor leader of the Senate.

Senator Wherry’s political career ended with his death on November 30, 1951. At that time, speculation was increasing about Wherry’s possible candidacy for President of the United States.

Senator Wherry was survived by his wife, Marjorie (Colwell) Wherry whom he had married September 15, 1920. Other survivors include his son, David, and daughter, Marilyn. Wherry was active in numerous civic and professional organizations including the Nebraska and American Bar Associations, the American Legion, and the Masons. He was a member of the Presbyterian Church and served on the Board of Trustees at Nebraska Wesleyan University.


This collection consists of twenty-one boxes and various oversized volumes of manuscript material arranged in five series: 1) Congressional files, 1943-1951; 2) Speeches and Press Releases, 1943-1951; 3) Special Article files, 1943-1951; 4) Miscellany and 5) Scrapbooks, 1938-1952.

The bulk of this collection consists of Congressional files relating to Kenneth S. Wherry’s service in the United States Senate, 1943-1951. These files primarily consist of correspondence, printed matter, Congressional bills and committee reports arranged alphabetically by year. The material generally reflects the legislative programs advocated by Senator Wherry as well as his views regarding general legislation. Included are materials relating to domestic and foreign affairs, national defense, agriculture, atomic energy, the national economy, education, labor and national and state politics. Little of the correspondence reflects Wherry’s political philosophy or his relations with other members of the Congress or of the government. Senator Wherry conducted much of his personal political business via the telephone and no record survives.

About History Nebraska
History Nebraska was founded in 1878 as the Nebraska State Historical Society by citizens who recognized Nebraska was going through great changes and they sought to record the stories of both indigenous and immigrant peoples. It was designated a state institution and began receiving funds from the legislature in 1883. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency. The division is headed by Interim Director and CEO Jill Dolberg. They are assisted by an administrative staff responsible for financial and personnel functions, museum store services, security, and facilities maintenance for History Nebraska.
