A six-figure donation by longtime Kansas Senator Bob Dole will help keep the Sunflower State's history alive.

The one-time Republican Presidential nominee gave a $150,000 check to the Kansas Sistorical Society.

"I am proud of what the Kansas Historical Society is doing to preserve our heritage and our historic sites throughout the state, to educate ourselves and others about the important contributions of Kansans throughout our nation's history, offer researchers and students
what they need to do their important work and, finally, remind everyone
of the values and sacrifices of Kansans that still help make this a
great country," Dole said in a statement.

The Historical Society says it plans to use the money mainly on the Fort Hays State historic site and the William Allen White House in Emporia.
