SEGMENT: NON-FARM WORK & TAXES
Gray Herndon>UIS Collection H-I>UIS Collection H-I, Segment 9
- NON-FARM WORK
- Gray's law practice was not specialized because Springfield was too small to have enough cases of any one kind, but he did some cases about school districts levying taxes that farmers resisted paying.
- School districts could draw their own lines in the early 1900s. State wanted to organize districts because some places were without high schools and their students had to find one to attend. His firm was hired to help a district organize itself to be able to sell bonds to build new schools.
