Old Home Town - 100 years ago

July 24, 2006


From the Lawrence Daily World for July 24, 1906: "From Asheville, N.C., comes a report that Henry Peason, a negro hotel proprietor, threatens to file suit against a local directory company because he is listed in the directory as white. He says that his business and character have been damaged. : A plan for the improvement of McCook Field at the university are being studied and much better grandstands appear to be in the project. This should help accommodating increasing attendance at events there. Another feature will be an improved score board, something long needed. "
