Special section: Journal-World to look back at devastating ‘51 flood Sunday’s Journal-World will include a special edition commemorating the 50th anniversary of the flood that ravaged North Lawrence and much of the region. The Flood of 1951 in Kansas and Missouri was the costliest catastrophe of its kind in area history. Property damage was estimated at $1 billion or more, at 1951 financial levels. More than 40 lives were lost in the region but, thankfully, none in Lawrence leading up to “Black Friday,” July 13, 1951. The 16-page section includes stories and photos from Journal-World archives and from readers. Additional photos and stories from flood survivors will be available online starting Sunday at www.ljworld. com/section/51flood. Additional copies of the special edition will be available for 50 cents each at Journal-World business office, 609 N.H. ___________________ Education: Advertising agency sets up scholarship in journalism A new scholarship will be available to Kansas University students in the William Allen White School of Journalism. Barkley Evergreen & Partners Inc., a Kansas City, Mo., advertising and marketing firm, gave $25,000 to the Kansas University Endowment Association. The scholarship will be in the name of Bill Fromm, the advertising firm’s founder and chairman. It will be awarded annually to an academically qualified junior or senior majoring in advertising or business communications. ___________________ Politics: Congressman to speak at luncheon in Lawrence U.S. Rep.
