Most Famous Person From Kansas?
Dorothy from Wizard of Oz doesn't count.
Fame isn't necessarily measurable is it? How would you pick one person and say they are the most famous, or more famous than someone who is apparently equally successful? I'd guess the one figure that would be the most immediately recognizable to the largest group of people would probably be Dwight Eisenhower.
how about Danny Carey the drummer from Tool
Here is another one-Alf Landon the Republican nominee for President who ran against FDR. He was the father of Nancy Kassabaum Kansas Senator who also served in the US Senate.
Jack Kilby (inventor of the microchip, nobel prize recipient)
R. Lee Ermey

the Koch brothers
George Washington Carver
Dave Hope, Phil Ehart and Kerry Livgren. ;)
