Webb, Thomas Hopkins, physician, was born at Providence, R. I., Sept. 21, 1801, and died on Aug. 2, 1866. From 1854 to 1860 he was secretary of the Emigrant Aid company. During that time he made scrap-books of clippings collected from newspapers published in all parts of the country. These clippings fill seventeen large volumes—over 3,000 pages ten by twelve inches in size, of three columns each—and are said to contain everything printed about Kansas during the seven years of his secretaryship. They constitute a veritable mine of information concerning the border troubles of the territorial period. In July, 1878, the scrap-books were purchased by the Kansas Historical Society for $400, and they form one of the best collections in the archives of that society. Dr. Webb also published a guide book for emigrants and two pamphlets about Kansas, each of which ran through six editions.
