New Display Celebrates the 150th Anniversary of Kansas Statehood
Question: What do communion sets, coal-fired power plants, and a grasshopper banquet held by Baker faculty have in common?
Answer: They are all part of a new exhibit celebrating the 150th anniversary of statehood (January 29th). The display, located near the reference desk in Collins Library, features seven cartoons/illustrations of different movements, events, and debates in the history of our state (and nation). From the well known voting irregularities during the territorial years to the lesser known grasshopper plague of 1874, each illustration is surrounded with resources and artifacts from the University Archives and Collins Library. The exhibit will be on display through March.
