McDanield by William E. Connelley, the historian who provided the preface to this collection. Under Connelley’s signature is the penciled date Jan. 22, 1903. A collection of writings and speeches by the Republican U.S. Senator John James Ingalls, who represented Kansas from 1887 to 1891. Ingalls was also, incidentally, a second cousin of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s father. Connelley (1855-1930) was born in Kentucky but spent his adult life in Kansas as a teacher, county clerk, businessman and banker. In the 1890s, Connelley began researching and writing historical and biographical volumes that many believe “constitute the most authentic and comprehensive record of Wyandotte County” in north-eastern Kansas, on the Missouri border. Connelley authored fourteen major books on Kansas and Wyandotte history, as well as numerous magazine and newspaper articles. From 1914 till his death in 1930, he was Secretary of the Kansas State Historical Society, who now hold the majority of his papers.
