Content Note

As part of the Works Progress Administration's American Guide Series, Kansas' first guidebook resulted from the research papers contained in this collection.

The subjects examined include the following: geography, early settlement history, music, religion, art, education, agriculture, industry, government, transportation, tourist accommodations, points of interest, and notable personalities. Biographical data about the writers is included as well as their personal evaluations of the Federal Writers' Project, an undertaking of the WPA. It is suggested that the "American Guide Classification of Topics" file (Box 1) be consulted before beginning research in this collection.
