A photograph of Mr. O. Leroy Sedgwick. He established the Pottawatomi Land Office in St. Marys in 1870, and four years later began publishing a newspaper. In August 1878, he moved his land office to Rossville. The newspaper, The Kansas Valley Times, was moved to Rossville from St. Marys in February 1879. It was published until his death in 1881, and in June of 1882 was sold to the Kansas Valley Publishing Company in Topeka. This photograph is provided through a pilot project to host unique cultural heritage materials from local libraries on Kansas Memory and was accomplished by mutual agreement between the Northeast Kansas Library System, the Rossville Community Library, and the Kansas Historical Society.

Date: Between 1874 and 1881
