The Kansas State Historical Society and the Spencer Research Library at the University of Kansas have extensive collections of biographical material, but there is no statewide biographical index. You may also search the biographical sections of statewide, regional, and county histories. Some representative biographical encyclopedias are:

The United States Biographical Dictionary: Kansas. Chicago, Illinois and Kansas City, Missouri: S. Lewis & Co., 1879. (FHL book 978.1 D3u; film 874388.)

Kansas Pioneers. Topeka, Kansas: Topeka Genealogical Society, 1976. (FHL book 978.1 D3t.)
