Old Home Town - 100 years ago

August 8, 2007


From the Lawrence Daily World for Aug. 8, 1907: "The ravenous green bugs who caused so much trouble with wheat are now attacking alfalfa in some local areas. Some say a third hay crop is about to be ruined. : The first woman graduate from the Kansas University School of Law, Mrs. Ella W. Brown, is now the pastor of the Congregational Church in Powhattan. She is highly regarded in her field, we are told. : Fred R. Moore, secretary of the National Negro Business Men's League, was in town last night, preparing for a coming meeting of his group in Topeka. He is editor of The Colored American, a magazine devoted to his race. : The Salvation Army is going to give an all-day outing, a big, old-fashioned picnic on Aug. 20, for poor mothers and their children."
