‘Lost’ history of Panama Canal is now found in exhibit at KC’s Linda Hall Library

To mark the 100th anniversary of the opening of the Panama Canal, Kansas City’s Linda Hall Library is showing a collection of photographs, blueprints, maps and journals from A.B. Nichols, the office engineer for the canal’s Culebra Cut. And to make the centennial more fun, a functioning scale model of a Panama Canal lock is being built on the north lawn of the library.
