Content Note

The collection contains the professional and personal papers of long-time Wichita City Manager Chris Cherches, who also acted in the same capacity for other municipalities in Kansas, Missouri, Minnesota, Montana, and Nevada from 1960 through 1985. Record types include correspondence, budget reports, press clippings, speeches, academic studies, periodicals, newsletters, professional and corporate publications, audiovisual material, and ephemera. Bulk dates are from 1972-2004.


Christopher Eugene Cherches was born on September 14, 1932, in Boonville, Missouri, and later moved in-state with his family to Columbia. Prior to and following service in the United States Navy, Cherches attended the University of Missouri, earning his bachelor's degree in Public Administration in 1957. He then received training at the School of City Management at the University of Kansas in 1958 before attaining an MPA from the same institution in 1963.

In 1958 Cherches also began his career in public administration as assistant to the village manager in Glencoe, Illinois. In 1960 he embarked upon a succession of city manager positions, serving Holton, Kansas, until 1963, and then moving to Mexico, Missouri (1963-1966); Gladstone, Missouri (1966-1968); St. Louis Park, Minnesota (1968-1977); Great Falls, Montana (1977-1980); and Reno, Nevada (1980-1985), before being hired as city manager for Wichita in 1985.

Cherches's time in Wichita saw his leadership and tireless work efforts revitalize the downtown area. During the 1990s and early 2000s Old Town, the Hyatt Regency Wichita, Exploration Place, and CityArts all came into being along with extensive remodeling of the Eaton Hotel, the Wichita Art Museum, and Lawrence-Dumont Stadium. Cherches also headed city-wide beautification projects, kept the city's mill levy unchanged for 11 years, and led in making over the Kellogg freeway and the K-96 bypass, along with other achievements in community matters.

Cherches resigned his position on December 31, 2003, and died from a fall on August 26, 2004, a few weeks after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He is survived by his wife Susan and four children.
