For nearly three decades, journalist and educator John Tibbetts — an associate professor of film studies at the University of Kansas — has enlivened his interviews with Hollywood stars and filmmakers by creating watercolor portraits of his subjects. Invariably, his interviewees sign the paintings, leaving Tibbetts with a unique collection of personal art and famous autographs.

Before and during the Civil War, Confederate guerrillas – men like William Clarke Quantrill, “Bloody Bill” Anderson, and Frank and Jesse James – battled federal troops and Jayhawker irregulars along the Missouri-Kansas border.

That brutal era comes to life in Guerrillas in Our Midst, an original exhibit of drawings and photographs from the Library’s Missouri Valley Special Collections. It covers not only the war but also its aftermath, when former bushwhackers like the James brothers turned to outlawry.
