Kansas counties covered are Nemaha, Brown, Doniphan and Atchison. There is a Preface, 479 biographies and 38 photos. A thumbnail photo can be found at the start of the 38 biographies for which a photo exists, and this links to a larger version.
All pages were scanned, adjusted for contrast, put through an OCR program, spellchecked and proofread, comparing the page images with the text. Biographies vary in length from less than a page to 15 book pages, with the average being 1.6 pages.
The Biographies in the book were in no particular order, but appear to be somewhat clustered by County. I have sorted them alphabetically by name.
I have attempted to leave italics in place, but may have missed a few cases.
I will be happy to answer individual queries, as they occur.
