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.”

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.

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.

No mention was ever made when Hemenway and his wife chose to stay in Lawrence that he was the first Chancellor to do so. Murphy didn't stay, Dykes didn't stay, Wescoe didn't stay,Buding didn't stay.; Larrs wasn't welcome to stay, the local powers to be didn't like Larry because he had a mistress. . So this Chancellor is moving away, and you can bet the present and future ones will too.

Bitter pill? They're moving to where most Lawrence nutcase leftists hate with a feiry passion 'cause they can't find a job downtown in the art district. Stand on an overpass in the morning or afternoon on K-10; a.m.---eastbound "DG" plates, p.m.---westbound "DG" plates. Funny bunch you guys!

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.......

For a retirement community, we see to have trouble holding on to retirees.

Sorry, I honestly did not know who the Hemenways were. I though it was another business leaving Lawrence.

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.

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.

Hope he takes Perkins with him. Improve the ethical level of Lawrence.
