Old Home Town - 100 years ago

March 9, 2009


From the Lawrence Daily World for March 9, 1909: “With the members of both houses asleep at their desks, the closing hours of the Kansas Legislature came and adjournment was tied up over some appropriations bills. Only about $15,000 was at stake but there had been a 12-hour deadlock. … Fifty-eight boys and girls will be graduated from Lawrence High School this spring. There are six honor students, with all ‘1’ grades and the girls outnumber the boys in the class by four to one.”
