“To be preserved and included into the landscaping theme for the new Kansas City, Kansas, library building is this large tulip tree, a variety of the Southern magnolia. It stands within a few feet of the sidewalk on the Minnesota Avenue side of Huron park and has delighted passersby each spring for many years with its large, tulip-shaped flowers, colored a delicate pink. While a second, smaller tree to the west had to be destroyed, the contractor, Bob Eldridge, has placed a wire fence around this one and thinks it can be spared, although his earth moving machinery must work in close proximity.”
