July 12, 2019, 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM @ Matt Ross Community Center (MRCC)
Images of Kansas range from the moral heartland where Superman was raised to Bleeding Kansas where neighbors took up arms against neighbors. This course will examine several notable Kansans within that range of images. First will be The Notorious--John Brown, the abolitionist or terrorist and Dr. John R. Brinkley, the infamous goat gland doctor. Then we'll review The Self-Righteous--Carrie Nation and the Temperance Movement and Vern Miller, the Kansas Attorney General who sought to prohibit airlines from serving drinks while flying over "dry" Kansas. Finally will be The Innovators--Karl Menninger and his famous psychiatric clinic and Bill James, godfather of a new generation of baseball statistics.
