Encyclopedia > John McCuish

John Berridge McCuish (June 22, 1906 - March 12, 1962) was an American politician from Kansas. McCuish was born in Colorado and attended school in Missouri before graduating from Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas in 1925. After running several Harvey County newspapers, McCuish entered the military to serve in World War II. After returning from Germany, McCuish held several jobs with the Kansas Republican Party from 1939 to 1948. McCuish began his term as lieutenant governor of Kansas in 1954 under Governor Fred Hall. Governor Hall resigned a little more than a week before the inauguration of his successor on January 3, 1957. McCuish became the 34th governor of Kansas, an office he held for eleven days, making his the shortest administration in the history of the state. His one official act as governor was to appoint Hall to the State Supreme Court. After leaving office, McCuish returned to the newspaper business. He died after having a stroke and was interred in Greenwood Cemetery in Newton, Kansas. No mention of his service of governor is inscribed on his tombstone.
