We have been doing our format of Get To Know a Kansan for a while now, and thought it would be fun to focus an episode on the stories behind the people that have been named when we ask ‘who is your favorite Kansan from history?”

So, in this episode, I’m going to talk about the accomplishments of Amelia Earhart, John Stuart Curry, Dwight D Eisenhower, and William Stafford.


What You’ll Learn in this Episode

  • What Amelia Earhart accomplished
  • About the impact John Stuart Curry had on the Regionalism Art Movement
  • How many major events in American history were impacted by Dwight D Eisenhower
  • About the impact William Stafford had on poetry in America
