TitleBusiness Patterns in the Growth of a Midwestern City: The Kansas City Business Community Before the Civil War
AbstractCopy of an article about business patterns in early Kansas City by historical author Charles Glaab.
NotesPage 160: "Unlike his brothers who remained primarily western traders the most successful of the Chick sons, Joseph Smith, became an active town promoter and has claim to be considered as one of the more important city founders. In shifting from merchandising to banking, he successfully adapted himself to the changing role of the town as it was transformed from caravan stop to commercial center serving a contiguous trade area."
