Hattie Edwards Bright Endowed Memorial
Hattie Edwards Bright, 1867-1937, an early Kansas pioneer was a strong influence on her granddaughter, Jeanne Bright O'Malley. Having watched her grandmother live through the Great Depression, Jeanne knew the value of an education and hard work. Mrs. O'Malley's gift to the Library Foundation will continue to honor her grandmother's life and work. Income from the endowment will be used to support the Kansas history collection at the Library.
