The Osawatomie Globe 1897
According to local newspaper reports, the Houdini's were quite popular in Osawatomie, KS. I have discovered a newspaper article very critical of locals spending their new found money on entertainment such as medicine shows. The article also mentions the Yellow Fever quarantine in the southern US as a reason for so many "circus people" taking advance of the "good times here". The California Concert Company made their appearances at the Agnew Opera House. I am not sure where they stayed currently. Any information or photos regarding Houdini's stay in Osawatomie or of the opera house / hotels would be of great value to the book and research. Credit for any information or photos will be given in the book.
