National parks & recreation expert Leon Younger continues a three-part study of Kansas City’s distinctive system of parks and boulevards. Younger looks at how the system has evolved beyond George Kessler’s 1893 vision, assesses our capacity to maintain it, and proposes some near-term strategies.
The Library joins the Kansas City community in saying a fond, grateful goodbye to Henry W. Bloch, one of the city’s greatest entrepreneurs and philanthropists.
