Richardson photograph collection

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

Photograph collector, Dennis Richardson of Marysville, Kansas, donated these photographs to the Kansas Historical Society over a number of years. The collection includes many photographs by many different photographers, most of whom are unknown. The photographs are primarily of Marysville, Kansas, and the surrounding area. The Richardson collection includes thousands of photographs by Marysville photographer Oman Hawkins. For the most part, Richardson kept the Hawkins photos apart from the rest of the collection and many of those appear on Kansas Memory as the Omar Hawkins photograph collection, unit 216927. Images not yet digitized are available in the State Archives and Library research room.

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.
