William T. Kemper Sr.

William T. Kemper Sr.

One of the rich unusual collections held by JCHS are several volumes of scrapbooks about Kansas City banker and civic leader William T. Kemper Sr. and his family.

JCHS recently took the paper index (over 400 pages) and made it available as a searchable PDF file that can be downloaded from our website. 

JCHS is exploring how to make this rich collection - newspapers articles, pamphlets, speeches and cartoons - more accessible.
