Hemenways moving from Lawrence to Lenexa

December 2, 2011


A former Kansas University chancellor and his wife are moving from their Lawrence home to Lenexa.

Robert Hemenway, who stepped down as KU’s 16th chancellor in 2009, and his wife, Leah, had lived in a house on West Hills Parkway since leaving the chancellor’s residence.

Leah Hemenway said the couple was making the move to be closer to family.

“One of our kids lives there,” she said. “And we have grandkids there.”

because he retired due to health concerns?

Bob_Loblaw 6 years, 3 months ago

No he didn't at all. Look it up....he did it to teach and work on his book. His retirement had nothing to do with health.

That's the publicly stated reason.

If you had the ability to interact with human beings instead of just leave angry, bitter comments on the internet, you'd know he's not well. But alas.

Bob_Loblaw 6 years, 3 months ago

So.....someone told you this that I should have known about and talked to? Your comments make no sense....sorry but show me the facts.

perkins still lives here? I thought he split town the minute his job was gone.

How absurd the above comments. Please check your facts & think before you comment and be considerate of others. Any issue he may or may not have are not subject to discussion on this or any blog.

Mama says, "if you can't say something nice about someone, don't say anything at all".

someone woke up on the tacky side. Jeesh, what a nasty empty rant.

Tim Quest 6 years, 3 months ago

This is truly sad. Bob is really, really not well - mentally or physically. Whatever your thoughts of him as chancellor are, to wish harm on an elderly man in poor health with dementia is just pathetic.

Bob_Loblaw 6 years, 3 months ago

OK....another rumor someone pulled out of their arse. And if you actually know this to be true (somehow)'s no one's business except his and his family.

Absolutely. But a certain population likes piety and "I'll remember him in my prayers." Prayers are cheap and they can be pious over mythical circumstances. Perfect combo.

Tim Quest 6 years, 3 months ago

Who said anything about prayer? It's not a rumor and I didn't say anything about any prayers. Learn to read, Einstein.

Come to think of it, I saw barney Frank in town,guess he was here to see you FarneyMac !

Bob_Loblaw 6 years, 3 months ago

Put up factual sources or quit the rumor mill.

Bob_Loblaw 6 years, 3 months ago

Ditto.....this is not news worthy of putting in any paper.

KS 6 years, 3 months ago

Just look at the publication that you are reading this in. ?????????

Bob_Loblaw 6 years, 3 months ago

I just like arguing about petty BS actually.....How about someone Godwin this thread and put it out of everyone's misery....;-)

you mean to say CERTAIN people cannot leave Lawrence without news coverage?

Alceste 6 years, 3 months ago

More evidence that Lawrence is simply not a draw for retirement. The Hemmenway's are moving because Lawrence is not capable of supporting their needs as the years go passing by.....despite the fact "we" have "world class" LMH to serve you into the grave....hahahahahahahahahaha.......

I liked Hemenway. And his family was/is nice. I wish him good health, a happy holiday in their new home and thank him for his service to Lawrence and the University. Now the University still gets on my nerves sometimes.

Kansas City is known as the City of Fountains.

It is famed for its rich art scene, including the Plaza Art Fair, which is in the top five ranked art fairs in the nation, and the thriving Crossroads Arts District.

Also convenient are numerous great museums, galleries and performing arts centers.

Think Art and Design School next to the Art Center. The art center director is quite capable of taking such a concept into the world of success.

Lawrence is mostly known for basketball if known at all.
