Earlier this month (May), the Shawnee County Historical Society handed out its preservation awards at the historic Jayhawk Theater in Topeka. Among other award winners, the Society honored Commentator William Jennings Bryan Oleander, designating him "Speaker Emeritus of Kansas History." Oleander knows a thing or two about preservation... and the wisdom of saving the past and the present for the future.


The comments of William Jennings Bryan Oleander, otherwise known as Tom Averill, writer-in-residence at Washburn University in Topeka.
