James Eads How is Dead
An article from TIME Magazine 4 Aug 1930.
There were no photos of How in Stella's stuff.
1) "James Eads How: Portrait," Collier's, p. 16, June 26, 1926. A
depiction of the millionaire-hobo.
2) Kenny, Raymond, "The Hobo Convention," Survey, pp. 862-864, September, 23, 1911. A report on "The Hobo Convention" (officially "The Convention of the Unemployed") organized by James Eads How held in Washington, D.C. September 1-6, 1911, and the fifty or so hoboes that attended.
3) "Millionaire Hobo is Dead," Christian Century, p. 1020, August 20, 1930. An obituary-like account of James Eads How, his life and accomplishments, with particular focus on his work for the betterment of hoboes and their condition.

Subject: James Eads How
I came across one of your genealogy web sites (the Churchills) while doing some research on James Eads How. I'm a PhD student at Washington University in St. Louis, and I'm researching How's efforts to organize hoboes and the unemployed.
I was wondering if it would be at all possible to get a photocopy or scanned image of the El Dorado Springs Sun article that you found regarding How. I only ask because the only two archives of that paper are several hundred miles away from me.
Thanks for you time.
I found the newspaper clipping and a couple of others about How.
Other that what you see written on each clipping I don't have any more info as to Newspaper or dates. I can supply a few guesses:
1. The first clipping "Millionaire Hobo Here" was most likely from the El Dorado Springs Sun, from sometime in June 1914. This is based on the notebook reference that you saw on my web site.
2. The small clipping is hand dated July 2, 1914 is also is most likely from the El Dorado Springs Sun.
3. The last clipping was most likely from the Kansas City Star. Sometime around when How died in August 1930.
Good luck with your research. When you publish, I would love to see a copy of the work.
Thank you very much. I really appreciate it. When I'm all done, I'll send the finished product your way. Thanks again.
So this famous man, along with Janet Malbon (opera singer and teacher) and George Allan England (science fiction writer) all somehow touched the lives of Frank and Stella Churchill in El Dorado Springs, MO.
