New Exhibit At SCCC/ATS Library
10/05/2010
 

Seward County Community College/Area Technical School Library will present

the traveling exhibit, ³Wheat People: Celebrating Kansas Harvest² throughout

October.

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

Service.

The exhibit is free. For more information, contact the SCCC/ATS Library at

620-417-1160.
