TitleSC85 Charles S. Stevenson Papers Finding Aid
AbstractCharles S. Stevenson was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1895, but grew up in Olathe, Kansas, and Kansas City, Missouri. He worked at Hallmark Cards from the end of World War I until 1960. After retirement he became a free-lance writer for the Kansas City Star. He was very active in local social, civic, and military affairs. He died in 1985 in Kansas City, Missouri.

The collection provides information on the first 48 mayors of Kansas City, Missouri, serving the city between 1853-1971. The papers represent the files that Mr. Stevenson kept while he was writing a series of articles concerning Kansas City mayors which appeared in the Kansas City Star and Times in 1975-1976. Items found in the folders include rough drafts and final drafts of the articles, personal notes, photocopied newspaper clippings, and correspondence. The personal correspondence includes letters from relatives of some of the former mayors.
