Omar Hawkins photograph collection

Hawkins, Omar F. (Omar Finlay), 1890-1967

Based in Marysville, Kansas, photographer Omar Hawkins captured scenes of his town and the surrounding communities from 1912-1945. The images reveal the details of small town America and the emergence of the automobile and other modern conveniences. The Hawkins photograph collection at the Kansas Historical Society includes thousands of his photographs. While the entire collection is being digitized, over 2,000 images are currently available for viewing. This collection is very rich in content from Marysville, other towns in Marshall County, and surrounding counties. A series of photographs documents the Montgomery Ward store(exterior and numerous interiors of products being sold) in Marysville in the late 1920s. The text version provides the description of each image (and is thus available to our search engine) but we are unable to link from the individual photo description to the image at this time. We hope to make that possible in the future.

Philip Bright diary

Bright, Philip T., d. 1873

This diary comprises part of series three of the Abbie Bright Papers. Abbie's brother Philip wrote the diary during his stay in Kansas. Around 1870, Philip Bright moved to Kansas and took up a claim near present-day Clearwater in Sedgwick County. Abbie came to visit him soon after. The diary describes Philip's experience settling in Kansas in many very brief entries. It describes his travels, building a dugout, buffalo hunting, his health, raising stock, and helping his neighbors. The diary also includes accounts, a calendar of work, and information on his soldier's pension. Philip Bright did not settle permanently in Kansas. He accumulated a substantial amount of money and moved to Texas and then to Arizona by 1873 where he was murdered in his sleep and robbed.
