Old Home Town - 100 years ago

January 22, 2007


From the Lawrence Daily World for Jan. 22, 1907: A bill of unusual interest here is being framed for the legislature in Topeka: To provide for the establishment of a reformatory for incorrigible and immoral women. Plans are to put the establishment at Hutchinson to deal with the problems. Some here see no need for such a facility but others say the need will keep growing. Considerable debate is likely. : There is no opposition, it seems to bringing a new implement factory to Lawrence and money is being raised to promote the issue and assist in fast location."
