Liberal Kansas


People are surprised to learn that Kansas was once a seed-bed of liberal, progressive, and even Socialist thought.  

Liberal Kansas, a book in development, will tell the story of how Kansas, settled in  the 1850's by opponents of slavery from New England, established a society that was tolerant of progressive and eccentric thinking. 


Kansan innovators who understood the power of the press, combined with use of inexpensive mailing permits, made their voices reach across America having major impact on women's issues, religion, politics and civil rights.
