Time to catch up with Freedom's Frontier events, including their recent awards dinner. Our own dear Paul Bahnmaier was the recipient of the Judy Billings Award! My guests will be Jim Ogle, executive director of Freedom's Frontier, and anyone else he decides to bring along. Do YOU know how many Kansas counties are part of this amazing organization? Do YOU know how many partners there are in Freedom's Frontier? Have YOU been to the headquarters of Freedom's Frontier at the corner of 9th and Vermont in Lawrence?
Happy Thanksgiving Week!
Phog Allen's birthday is November 18 and it is a Timeline tradition to pay tribute to this man who has made so much history in Lawrence, Kansas.
My guest is Becky Schulte, who has been the University Archivist at the University of Kansas since 2003. Friends of KU Libraries have guaranteed the preservation of Phog Allen's legacy by raising funds to digitize materials from Allen's career as a KU basketball coach. It is no small task; Becky Schulte and her staff are working with 60,000 documents that will be accessible online to a world-wide audience.
To all veterans: Thank you for your service.
Vashti Winterburg and David Severance, two veterans of the United States military services, will be my guests on Timeline in this tribute to Veterans' Day.
Sarah St. John will be my guest on Timeline to talk about past Halloween adventures in and around Lawrence. Joining us will be Paul Thomas, author of Haunted Lawrence, a new book about houses and other places in Lawrence and Douglas County with histories of hauntings.
On today's show, we will visit briefly with Paul Bahnmaier about the Lecompton Historical Society's annual tree exhibit with antique Christmas decorations. Also featured on Timeline today will be the Jefferson County Historical Society in Oskaloosa with my guest Matt Teague.
Timeline is fortunate today to have Professor Robert Rebein who is on a book tour for Headlights on the Prairie. He will be speaking at Washburn University Monday afternoon at 4 p.m. Dr. Rebein has also written Dragging Wyatt Earp. Both books are about his growing up years in and around Dodge City and being part of a big family. Earlier this fall, Eric Holcomb interviewed Dr. Rebein, and they talked a lot about the content of the book and life in Western Kansas. I enjoyed both books, and I am eager to visit with Dr. Rebein about his changing perspectives as he grew from childhood to being the chairperson of a university English department!
On today's show, my guests for this important day will be Eric Anderson and Cody Marshall from the faculty of Haskell Indian Nations University. We will recognize Indigenous Peoples Day, and celebrate the 133rd anniversary of Haskell!
On today's show with Clenece Hills, KLWN's Eric Holcomb joins Clenece for conversations about Kansas, communication, and the ongoing headlines affecting us in Lawrence and Las Vegas. An original Timeline interview with Kansas traveler Marci Penner, previously scheduled for today, has been rescheduled.
On today's show, we continue to reach out to area communities. My guests on Timeline will be Roberta "Bert" Fritz and Arlene Pritchard. We will talk about the 150th anniversary of Linwood, a charming community east of Lawrence on Highway 32.
Timeline celebrates Lawrence's 163rd birthday today. My guest will be Sandra Wiechert, who was very active in making Sesquicentennial Point a reality. Sandra and I will share the stories behind the stones in the Walk Through Time at Sesquicentennial Point.
