Wichita Jazz and Vice Between the World Wars by Joshua L. Yearout
To see the rest of the book, order from: http://rowfantpress.com Bootleggers And Jazz! It’s all here, from King Oliver to Charlie Parker – music that passed through town and music that was created in Wichita, while the clubs served contraband whiskey and the people frolicked. Joshua L. Yearout did this research while employed as an archivist in Special Collections at Wichita State University Library. A version of this served as his thesis for a Master of Arts in Public History. Joshua died four years later in 2009 at age 33. His love for this topic, thoroughness, and crisp writing style are evident in every page.
