An address delivered by Connelley before the Kansas City, Kansas, High School on November 12, 1901. William Elsey Connelley (1855-1930) was the Secretary of the Kansas State Historical Society between 1914 and 1930 and was the author of fourteen historical books. He had taught school in Wyandotte County betwen 1881 and 1882, and served as the Wyandotte County Clerk from 1883 to 1887. In 1905, he led a call to action amongst the independent oil men in Kansas that led to his participation in the fight against the Standard Oil Company, which eventually resulted in the dissolution of the Standard Oil Trust by the United States Supreme Court.
The previous owner appears to have been John W. McDanield (1836-1915) of Bonner Springs, Wyandotte County, Kansas. He was a pioneer railroadman, a conductor for the Kansas Pacific Rail Road, and the father of the Kaw Valley interurban electric trolley line.
