Big First Cover Photo

In 1961, Kansas, with the rest of the United States, found itself at a political, social, and cultural crossroads. Featuring a selection of constituent letters written to then-Congressman Bob Dole from the collections of the Dole Archives, this original exhibit offers a window into the hopes and fears of everyday Kansans as they responded to change at home and conflict abroad.
