J. M. Walden, a Methodist preacher, politician, and ardent Free-State man, was editor of the Quindaro Chindowan newspaper in Wyandotte County, Kansas Territory, from 1857-1858. His two volume scrapbook includes newspaper clippings and notes on national and local politics. It focuses on the Popular Sovereignty issue that defined the creation of Kansas Territory and its efforts to achieve statehood, including many articles on the slavery question generally, abolitionism, the threat of secession, John C. Fremont, and the writing of the Kansas constitution. Many of the articles are from the Quindaro Chindowan.
