A collection of a schedule, magazine, programs, brochures, and other items related to the annual KABIE Study Tour in 1961.
The Kansas-Agriculture-Business-Industry-Education (KABIE) Tour was an annual tour, conducted from 1950 to 1967, sponsored by the Kansas State Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with the state universities and other Kansas businesses and associations. The two-week tour took teachers and students to forty communities in Kansas, travelling 2,100 miles. The theme or goal of this tour was to have Kansans see Kansas and all its attributes or a “free society in action” as Dr. M. C. Cunningham, past president of Fort Hays State University, put it. Students could receive college credit or even a scholarship for attending the tour. The tour itself included visiting the Kansas universities, various businesses and factories, and agricultural sites.
