A love letter to Iola ­— the woman as well as the town

Last weekend I received a message from Ida Belle Brownrigg Woodward that said simply, “I thought you would enjoy this article from Ford Times – 1958.” 

Sure enough, in the July 1958 issue is a charming article from Lee Priestley titled, “Kansas — I Love Iola.”

Four fetching watercolors by Frederic James, a Kansas City artist, (1915-1985), accompany the article.
