KSHS Lecture Series: “The Development of Chemical Warfare”

Join the Kansas State Historical Society for a special Museum After Hours program series, 6:30 p.m. Friday. The programs complement the Kansas Museum of History’s special exhibit, Captured:  The Extraordinary Adventures of Colonel Hughes, and are held in recognition of the 100th anniversary of World War I.

Kip Lindberg, director, Chemical Corps Museum, U.S. Army Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear School, Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri presents “The Development of Chemical Warfare.” The First World War saw the implementation of many types of new weapons. However, it was the introduction of poison gas that caught the World’s attention, and has held it for the past century. The program will cover the development of chemical warfare in World War I: why poisonous gas use was initiated, what gases were used and what were their effects, and what is the legacy of chemical warfare 100 years later.
