The Wizard Of Oz Trivia

HONDOHONDO Member, Wizard of Aus Posters Posts: 7,560 ✭✭✭✭✭ Elite Collector
 The original children's book The Wonderful  Wizard Of Oz, was written by L. Frank Baum and published in 1900, from which the 1925 and 1939 The Wizard Of Oz films and many other film versions were adapted. Earlier on in his life Baum was thought to have written two racists editorials for his newspaper calling for the extermination of Native Americans. In 2006 , two of Baum's descendants apologized to the Sioux Nation for the editorials. I had never read about this story previously. Has anyone else been aware of this information ?
