A map drawn by Dean O. Smith, showing creeks, the Union Pacific Railroad, the state road to Nebraska and Russell City in Township 13 South, Range 14 West, Russell County. In a separate five page note, Dean, who would later become a surveyor, includes an extensive legend of the map which acts as a history of the township and Russell City. This is one of several maps drawn by school children for a contest organized by Judge J. C. Ruppenthal of Russell, Kansas. The maps were to meet a "requirement of presenting historical data, together with excellence and accuracy of drawing."
