The mission of the Kansas WW1 Centennial Committee is to raise awareness and educate about the role of Kansas and Kansans in World War I. Our goals are to:

  1. Identify, endorse, and promote First World War centennial commemorative activities around the state of Kansas;
  2. Identify, collect, and share information about First World War monuments and memorials in the state of Kansas using the KSHS-operated Kansas Historical Resources Inventory (KHRI);
  3. Identify, collect, and share information about Kansas citizens who lived during the First World War.

To accomplish these goals, we have developed this website as a means of promoting WW1-related centennial commemoration activities around the state as well as collecting and archiving information about the history of Kansas and Kansans during the First World War.


Kansas WW1 is a commemorative partner of the United State World War One Centennial Commission. For more information about the national effort to commemorate the First World War, visit their website at
