Old Home Town - 100 years ago

October 15, 2006


From the Lawrence Daily World for Oct. 15, 1906: "Water and light franchise holders from all over Kansas are coming here for a convention and will be addressed by a number of professors from KU. : The university football team now has a 4-0 football record after a victory over Arkansas. : Lecturer Newton N. Riddell continues to draw large crowds and yesterday he talked 'strictly to men.' More than 800 attended. : A surprising number of local residents age 70 and up have died recently, greatly cutting down on the number of people who can be classified as 'old settlers' for having lived here 50 years or more."
