All Library locations will be closed on Monday, May 30, for Memorial Day.

The famous - and infamous - and not so famous but important deceased Kansas Citians are featured in these locally written biographies. Actors and actresses, artists and architects, politicians and philanthropists, sports figures and settlers, criminals and community leaders, and others all either lived or worked in Kansas City at one time. New biographies are added regularly, so check back frequently.
