This finding aid describes materials held by the Kansas State Historical Society as part of the holdings of the State archives. Materials may be used in the Research Room in the society’s Center for Historical Research during regular research hours. Support for telephone, mail, and online reference and research is limited.

In a continuing effort to improve the completeness and accuracy of finding aids, revisions are made as more or new information becomes available. Consequently, this finding aid may differ slightly from what appears on the Kansas State Historical Society’s web site.

Descriptions are often based on a preliminary inspection of the material. As such, they may contain misspellings or other inaccuracies based on folder headings and other sources within the materials. As the collections are arranged and as time permits, these finding aids are improved and corrected. If you spot an error, please feel free to report it to the reference staff or an archivist.

At the present time, this is a partial inventory of the records of the Kansas State Historical Society’s Education and Outreach Division in the State archives. As more of the division’s records are arranged and described, additions and revisions will be made to this finding aid.


Kansas State Historical Society (Topeka)


In May of 1991, Jennie Chinn was named director of the newly formed Education and Outreach Division of the Kansas State Historical Society. The new division merged the folk life and Museum Education divisions from the Museum Department and the former Publications Department that included public information activities.

The mission of the Division is to facilitate public understanding and appreciation of Kansas’ history and culture through the dissemination of information. It is the charge of the Division to research, interpret, and spread, through public programs, issues of Kansas’ history and culture including the cultural diversity of the state.

Scope and Content

The Education and Outreach Division is part of the Kansas State Historical Society, a state agency supplemented by a membership organization. Both are devoted to preserving and interpreting the past and making history available to residents and visitors of all ages. In the course of performing its regular professional activities, records are created and are subject to the retention and disposition schedule put forth and agreed upon by the State Records Board. Any records deemed to be historically significant have been transferred to the Archives for processing and made available to the public for research purposes.

The Traveling Trunks program was set up in an effort to make Kansas’ history available for those who found it difficult to travel to the state capital of Topeka and view the Museum and its artifacts in person. The trunks are shipped to whomever wishes to use their contents in an effort to bring Kansas history alive for students at the grade school through high school level, inclusive. The trunks are set up of a subject basis. Examples are the Volga German or Mexican trunks that include articles felt to be typical of that ethnic group’s life in Kansas.

The society publishes a scholarly journal entitled Kansas History as well in an effort to disseminate the state’s heritage to a wider audience. Some of the articles are found in these records in a draft form with accompanying comments from Kansas History editors as well as the authors or editors of the pieces involved.

The Subject Files are primarily a synopsis of rough drafts and final copies of articles submitted for Kansas History. Often included is correspondence between the author and the various editors. Comments for improvement are also found in these folders. The author or editor’s name identifies the folder. The season and year on the folder’s tab identifies each issue of the magazine, for example “Winter 1993.”

The Book Reviews folders within the Subject Files include both the actual monographs’ reviews by editors as well as any pertinent transfer agreements between the authors and the State Historical Society. The Book Notes folders deal primarily with shipping information and any accompanying correspondence. There are also short, paragraph-length abstracts of various articles that deal with Kansas, the American West, or both.

Subject Files : Training Manuals describes the “Our Recent Past : 40s 50s 60s 70s 80s” exhibit case in the Kansas Museum of History; the manual describes various artifacts and how to interpret them for the intended audience. “Lucy goes to Oregon” is a fictional story of a girl’s travels on the Oregon Trail and is intended for younger museum visitors.

The folders of Training Materials within the Subject Files : Training Manuals give instruction to students on various subjects. These include: Native Americans, the military, agriculture, domestic life, and children. There is some text, and illustrations or photographs, of an object or subject. For example, there are pictures of irons, and pictures of newspaper ads dealing with irons and their use in the history of Kansas. Interpreters’ manuals, child centered learning, and development as well as local history dates are included in the folders.

The Evaluations portion of the Traveling Trunk Files consists of response forms used to determine how the society did in meeting the expectations of its users. Questions include: What trunk did you borrow?, How many people used the trunk?, and What did they enjoy most and least?.

The Inquiries folder has correspondence that deals with requests for brochures, tapes, or trunks. It also has comments, criticisms and compliments noted in the various letters sent and received.

This section describes the order in which the collection’s elements have been placed.

Subgroup (no. 3); Organized into topical series.

Contents: Subject files, 1993 – 1997 – Traveling trunk files, fiscal years 1985 - 1997.

Detailed Description

Archival records are typically organized by series, a group of records that has a common element or function and a distinct organizational structure of its own, for example Correspondence Files, arranged chronologically, or Registers of Military Enlistments, arranged by regiment. Within series, records may be further organized by subseries, such as Letters Received within the series Correspondence Files; or arranged into volumes; folders; or items. Groups of series from the same office or other organizational element may form a subgroup, a portion of a larger record group or collection, such as the subgroup 1979 – 87 (John Carlin) as a part of State Archives record group 252, Records of the Office of the Governor. Subgroups may be further divided into sub - subgroups — such as Gov. Carlin’s Constituent Services Records — sub - sub - subgroups, etc.

Entry numbers refer to the agency’s records retention/disposition schedule.
