Henry W. Blair's Campaign to Reform America

University Press of Kentucky

Henry W. Blair supported legislation on federal aid to education introduced by other senators when he first arrived in that chamber. Starting in 1881 he introduced his own bill that distributed funds based on illiteracy. This would have directed that most funding to the southern states and insured the support of southern senators. The legislation easily passed the Senate, but it failed in the House of Representatives.
