Papers for the World War I years, 1917-1920 focus on the Minnesota Commission of Public Safety, which was granted broad powers to protect the state and assist in the war effort. There is information on its work and that of the Minnesota Home Guard in surveillance of alleged subversive activities, in focusing opposition to labor unions and strikes, in locating draft evaders, in imposing a curfew on saloons and restaurants, in discouraging the use of non-English languages in schools, and in registering and monitoring aliens, as well as criticism of its suppression of political activities and civil liberties.
Other papers for this period pertain to food and fuel conservation, the selective service law, Liberty Loan drives, and other war measures. Papers for 1919-1920 focus on postwar issues such as continued concern with disloyalty and draft evasion, Victory Loan drives, President Woodrow Wilson's visit to Minnesota (Sept. 1919), iron ore tonnage tax and soldiers' bonus bills, the League of Nations, and the 1920 presidential election.
There are a few business and legal papers and personal memorabilia for the years 1884-1908. Papers for 1909-1916 largely concern state legislative and political matters, including education, labor, the iron ore tonnage tax, civil service reform, juvenile courts, temperance, the Minnesota Progressive Republican League, national trade and tariffs, Burnquist's accession to the governorship (Dec. 1915), and his 1916 gubernatorial campaign.
Papers for 1921-1960 concern Burnquist's campaigns for other state offices, his activities as state attorney general, state and national Republican party politics, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and Burnquist's nonpolitical activities: his St. Paul law business, his presidency (1920s) of the Modern Life Insurance Company, the Plymouth Congregational Church in St. Paul, and alumni activities of Carleton College.
