This study is a history of Russell County, Kansas. It has been limited, in the main, to the economic aspect of the county's history. However, there are three chapters concerning settlement. The first chapter deals mainly with the physiographic nature or the Great Plains; the second treats the coming of the railroad; a chapter on the actual settlement of the county follows. The remaining four chapters deal with agriculture, oil and population. Thus this thesis will relate the events leading to settlement, economic life and a brief demographic study of the county.
