Old Home Town - 100 years ago

April 5, 2007


From the Lawrence Daily World for April 5, 1907: "A committee of 25 has been named to revive the Douglas County Fair here this September and early indications are that some notable plans are being considered. : Rev. Wallace Payne of Lawrence has been chosen national secretary of the Disciples of Christ, now in session in Cincinnati. He is widely known and respected through his splendid work as head of the Christian Bible Chair at Kansas University. : W.B. Bidgood has been honored for seven years as an outstanding mail carrier on Rural Route No. 1. At first he made only $300 a year but now his salary is due to go up to $900 a year with a 15-day vacation with full pay."
