Description

This collection consists of correspondence, newspapers, newspaper clippings, scrapbooks, and transcripts relating to the Jayhawk Ordnance Works.

The Jayhawk Ordnance Works were built near Galena, Kansas during World War II to produce ammonium nitrate. After the war it was privatized by its operator Kenneth Aldred Spencer and at one point was the world’s largest producer of ammonium nitrate fertilizer. The plant is still in operation as the Jayhawk Fine Chemicals Corporation.
