Along with J. F. Jarrell, Myron A. Waterman edited a quarterly journal titled The Kansas Knocker: A Journal for Cranks. Though short-lived, the journal received essays from such contributors as William Allen White and John J. Ingalls. Waterman himself also contributed to The Kansas Knocker. The purpose of the Knocker was for the writer to complain, or "knock," on a subject of their choice. As one might suspect, politics was a frequent theme in the Knocker, but certainly not the only one. Other topics commented on included literature, the changing role of women in society, and current events. Copies of the April 1900 and October 1900 issues of The Kansas Knocker are in this collection. An advertisement for the July 1900 issue, which includes a list of contributors to that issue, is also here.

Date: 1900
