Special thanks to Museum of Ellinwood and Ellinwood Community Historical Society patron, Marlin Bryant, for donating these photographic documentations of Neighbors helping Neighbors. These photographs depict the generous spirit of Ellinwood, Kansas, and the hard work and dedication of the early farmers who helped establish our rural community.

Marlin writes,

“Attached are the three pics I printed and framed and donated to the Museum depicting a group of Southside farmers who got together to assist a neighbor who was unable to do his planting.  The persons I recognize in the group picture are my Uncle August Langrehr (front row far left), My Uncle  Wilbur Bryant (FR-5 from left), Wilbur’s son Leo Bryant (FR-3 from left), and Adolph ‘Doc’ Mueller.  I offer these as part of our new photo archive and a potential addition to the Museum photo library.”

Marlin, we are thankful for your donation of this collection as well as your other contributions to our organizations.
