Finding Aid for the George Banker Owens Collection

The collections consists of photos, documents, correspondence, and artifacts relating to the life of George B. Owens.

As a student and later a teacher in Johnson County, Kansas and Wyandotte County, Kansas schools, many of the photos are not only not only of him, but class photos, and photos of school buildings. The collection helps form a history of the early rural schools in the area. The photos and artifacts relating to his military career include many early photos of airplanes from World War I.
