Sunflower Journeys - C.L. Brown- Kansans You Should Know

  • Aired: 10/16/2012

  • Rating: NR
In 1899, C. L. Brown founded the United Telephone company in Abilene, KS. We tell the story of Mr. Brown and learn how his little company merged with other companies to later become the Sprint Corporation. We visit The Museum of Telephony in Abilene, where the story comes to life through many displays showing telephones and equipment over the decades.
