Wichita State University Special Collections University Archivist Lorraine Madway, curator of Wichita State University’s Special Collections, displayed local works from the Work Progress Administration (WPA) Federal Writers' Project and also the oldest holding in their collection - a Japanese scroll dating back to 770 C.E. from the Robert T. Aitchison Collection of Old and Rare Books.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2012 LCV Cities Tour” in Wichita, Kansas, on May 7-10 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Cox Communications local cable affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
