IN 1899

February 18, 1999


On Feb. 18, 1899, the Lawrence Journal stated: "It is to be hoped that the present legislature will take care of the State Historical society. In this library all are interested. The 415 files of Douglas County newspapers in the keeping of the society are of priceless worth to our people. These files contain the history of our country; for the use of the people for all time to come."
