Native Kansas Photographer honored. Howard University acquires photographic archive from a person from Fort Scott, Kansas -- Gordon Parks. https://www.washingtonpost.com/arts-entertainment/2022/05/16/gordon-parks-photos-howard-university/ He is one of the few from that city to have achieved national prominence for his photography, indeed one of the few Kansans to have done so. He is an honor to his state. Of course there are those who think his photography deserves attention for its quality, rather than because of his geographic origins. Fort Scott is otherwise known for a pre-Civil War military post.
