His publications include Gateways to the Southwest: The Story of Arizona State Parks, Wichita, 1860-1930, Wichita's Legacy of Flight, and El Dorado!: Legacy of an Oil Boom.  His work on the El Dorado boom became the basis for a KPTS-produced documentary called "Oil Dorado:  Life and Times of an Oil Boom."  His book, Wichita’s Lebanese Community, has become the subject of a Sunflower Journeys segment.  His most recent books are Wichita 1930-2000 and Kansas: In the Heart of Tornado Alley. He is currently on the board of the Kansas Humanities Council, the Wichita Sedgwick County Historical Museum, and the Kansas Association of Historians.  He is also an alternate board member for the University Press of Kansas.  His latest book, Temples for a Modern God: Religious Architecture in Postwar America , from Oxford University Press, has just come out.
