Frank Carlson Library
The Frank Carlson Library is the public library serving Concordia. When the
library was constructed in 1976, a room was included which was dedicated
to Concordia’s most illustrious citizen, Senator Frank Carlson. Among the
items on display in the Carlson Room are a check signed by fellow Kansan
Dwight D. Eisenhower in the playful settlement of a bet, a mug from the U.S.
Senate, special inaugural license plates, several political cartoons,
campaign literature, and dozens of photographs.
Frank Carlson is the only Kansan in state history to have served in the U.S.
House of Representatives, in the U.S. Senate, and as governor of Kansas.
He was a co-founder of the Presidential Prayer Breakfast, a tradition which
continues to this day.
