Kansas History Bibliography, Part I (A-J)


Every compiler of a bibliography knows that it is incomplete the moment the decision is made to "finish" the work. So it was with Kansas History: An Annotated Bibliography, published in a 616-page volume by Greenwood Press early in 1992.

For that reason we planned to continue our searching for another five years and then to publish in some format our findings in the form of an addenda. Included here are many items published in the years 1992-1997, as well as items overlooked from an earlier era.

There is a substantial number, more than seven hundred items, in this new list. In the past five years we have compiled a list that is one-seventh as long as the original bibliography. The study of Kansas history is alive and well, it would seem. It remains an ongoing, active, productive field of endeavor.

The arrangement in this addenda is alphabetical by last name of author, with a bold-faced number at the end of each entry keyed to the 1992 volume which contained 4,565 entries. Thus there is no need for an index of authors. However, we provide here an index to subjects, using the same criteria found in the original. New periodicals used for this addenda were very few so we have not repeated that reference section.

Again, we thank all those who have helped in this process, especially the authors and editors who prepare materials about Kansas. The new articles and books coming out in the history of Kansas remain abiding interests for us.
