100 years ago: State seeing more women bankers

June 6, 2010


From the Lawrence Daily World for June 6, 1910: “Kansas women are coming to the front rapidly as bankers. Ten years ago only two women held official positions in the banks of this state. Today there are more than 550. Of this number, four are presidents, 15 vice presidents, 50 cashiers, 250 assistant cashiers and 250 directors. This doesn’t take into account stenographers or bookkeepers.... When Prof. Dyche, State Fish and game Warden, saw the article published a few days ago giving the experience of Mrs. R. C. Johnston with carp in her father’s pond, he remarked, ‘Mrs. Johnston no doubt tells the facts as they existed at the time, but the trouble must have come from the conditions rather than from the nature of the fish. The carp is in reality one of the best fish in the world. When taken from a river or pond deep enough to permit of there being cool water, it will be found to be firm and appetizing.’...THE WORLD IMPROVES. The above heading has no reference to this old world in which we live although it is improving every day; but it does refer to the Lawrence World which has installed a Duplex Perfecting press at the cost of $6,500. It has also been increased from four to eight pages.”
