Noted and Notorious Kansans


What do all the people above have in common? They are all Kansans!

There are more noted—or notorious—Kansans than you might realize. From Lucy Ricardo’s sidekick to NFL Hall of Famers to Nobel Prize winners, Kansans have left their mark on the world. Do you know about the doctor who got rich implanting goat testicles in men—and almost got elected governor? What about the long-time head of the Communist Party in the USA? We’ll tell about these and a few dozen more. There are so many that we’ll only have time to say a little about each one

Noted and Notorious Kansans will be presented at the library on Tuesday, January 26 at 7:00 p.m.
