Olathe’s 150 most Notable People

We here at JoCoHistory were not blogging or tweeting this time last year when Olathe was finishing up its Sesquicentennial celebration, so I was not able to share this fantastic article.  Olathe’s 150 Most Notable People presents bios of citizens, politicans, developers and businesspeople  as well as rabble-rousers, outlaws and criminals throughout the history of the city.

Chargers running back Darren Sproles is on the list, as is longtime KSD teacher William Marra, serial murderer Bert Dudley and civil rights leader Corinthian Nutter.

The article is a fascinating look at the ups and downs of a small Kansas city that is unique in so many ways but still provides a model for examining the culture at large.
