Seward County Community College/Area Technical School Library will present
the traveling exhibit, ³Wheat People: Celebrating Kansas Harvest² throughout
Throughout much of the 20th century, Kansas has produced more wheat than
most other countries. It comes as little surprise that Kansas is known by
the nicknames ³Wheat State² and ³breadbasket.² It is a matter of great pride
to farmers in the state that claims to feed the world.
³Wheat People: Celebrating Kansas Harvest² looks at why harvest is so
important. More than just economic survival for farmers, it is a part of our
past and our tradition. From the Golden Age of threshing to computerized
combines, harvest time holds memories for many Kansans.
This exhibit also explores how changes in technology have influenced Kansas
farm families. From field equipment to how meals are prepared and served are
featured. Other aspects such as nature, storage, and after-harvest festivals
are examined within the exhibit.
³Wheat People: Celebrating Kansas Harvest² was produced by the Kansas State
Historical Society and is part of the Kansas Interpretive Traveling Exhibits
The exhibit is free. For more information, contact the SCCC/ATS Library at
