Frank Wilson Blackmar (1854-1931) has been described as "one of the master builders of the University of Kansas" and "an outstanding figure in the world of the social sciences." Despite Blackmar's many accomplishments, he is not well known by contemporary sociologists. This article briefly reviews his work as an academic and practitioner and then focuses on Blackmar's unsettling last years at the University of Kansas. This account of Blackmar's retirement is based on letters and memos found in the university archives.
