MARION COTT
Marion Cott founded the Kansas Humanities Council and served as its executive director
for 34 years, from 1972 – 2006. When Marion was selected as the Council’s director, the
public humanities effort was an experimental program of the National Endowment for the
Humanities, and only 13 councils were operative at the time. Now there are 56 councils
in the states and territories.
Marion has been a member of various community groups and professional organizations,
including the Kansas Bicentennial Commission, the Quincentenary Commission, and the
advisory board of the Kansas Sesquicentennial Commission. She was a delegate to the
Mountain/Plains Cultural Tourism 1997 Leadership Forum, served as state evaluator for
the PRIDE community development program, and was a board member of TIAK, the
Travel Industry Association of Kansas.
At the national level, Cott served on the Board of Directors of the Federation of State
Humanities Councils, the professional association of humanities councils, and on the
Board of Directors of the Great Plains Chautauqua Society. She participated as a grants
reviewer for the National Endowment for the Humanities. In addition, she has taught
Latin American and United States history at Washburn University and Kansas State
University as an adjunct professor.
A native Texan, Marion received her BA and MA from the University of North Texas,
Denton, and continued her graduate studies in Latin American history at the University of
