THE ROBINSON MILLING COMPANY
SALINA, Kansas


The Robinson Milling Company, Salina Kansas by the Robinson Milling Company, Salina Kansas
The Robinson Milling Company, Salina Kansas by The Robinson Milling Company, Salina Kansas This is an illustrated letter head from the now closed flour mill "The Robinson Milling Company, Salina Kansas" from December 9, 1920. The illustration is of their warehouse and grain elevators located on the corner of 9th, and North Street Salina Kansas. There are also two illustrated automobile, and two train cars. On either side of that main illustration are representations of two of their products. "Robin's Best Flour" which has a drawing of a bird on a branch, and "Betty Jane Flour" which has a girl swinging on a swing, attached to a tree branch. In visible light, the watermark on the paper cannot be seen. But if it is held up to the light, it shows the words "Public Service Bond" and a number. I also included a photograph that I took of the same location on June 01, 2015. Nearly 95 years after this letter was dated.

LONG ILLNESS ENDS
MRS. C. E. ROBINSON PASSES AWAY THURSDAY

Mrs. Jennie A. Robinson, 67, wife of C. E. Robinson, head of one of the prominent grain and milling firms of Kansas, died at 10 o'clock Thursday night at her home, 850 South Santa Fe. She had been in failing health for several years and for many months past her condition had fluctuated from very critical attacks to apparent periods of improvement. Recent weeks, however, had shown little improvement. Mrs. Robinson suffered a serious heart attack while she was on a trip to California about two years ago, and after being brought home was very ill for some time. There were recurrences of that illness, however, at times serious enough to cause grave alarm.

In other years Mrs. Robinson had been active in church and social circles of the city, activities which were necessarily curtailed by her failing health. The Robinson home has been in Salina since 1911, the family moving here from western Kansas as Mr. Robinson's business interests expanded in this territory. Mrs. Robinson was born March 15, 1871, at Uhrichsville, O. In the immediate family, besides Mr. Robinson, there are three daughters and one son. They are Harry L. Robinson, Kansas City, Mo., grain executive; Mrs. Ed Morgenstern, wife of Salina's mayor; Mrs. Albert F. Pyle, also of Salina.; and Mrs. Robert W. Campbell, Beaver Falls, Pa. There are two brothers and two sisters, Oscar Latto, Uhrichsville, O., Harry Latto, Lincoln, Neb., Mrs. Ida Worstell, Valparaiso, Ind., and Mrs. Nora Davis, Canton, O. There are four grandchildren.

Mrs. Robinson was a member of the Methodist Church. Her body has been taken to the Rush Smith Funeral Home to remain until Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock, when it will be taken to the First Methodist Church to lie in state until 3 o'clock, the hour of the funeral. Rev. Herbert Jackson Root will officiate at the service. Entombment will be made in the family crypt in the mausoleum in Gypsum Hill Cemetery.
