Almost anyone who has a love for Kansas history knows the work of Craig Miner.
There wasn't much Dr. Miner, Willard W. Garvey Distinguished Professor of Business History and past chairman of the department of history at Wichita State University, didn't tackle.
From railroads, oil, entrepreneurship, technology, Civil War and pioneer stories, he passionately wrote the history of Kansas — all told, more than 40 books.
Dr. Miner died Sunday. He was 65. Services are pending.
