About J.P. Weigand
In 1902, a young man from Mt. Sterling, Illinois, came to Wichita in a wagon selling maps for Rand McNally. When he arrived and viewed the surroundings, he felt he had come to a boom town. In fact, his perception was that Wichita was the Indianapolis of the Southwest.
On his business card, sometime in the late 1920's, he had printed the following:
"I am for Wichita. Wichita is the Indianapolis of the Southwest. The greatest commercial and financial center of its size in the world. 15 lines of railroad radiate into a territory with 700,000 people within 100 miles of Wichita; wherein the future will live 1,000,000 people, with Wichita as their metro point. Population now 45,000; will soon have 100,000. Watch us grow."
