Bob Brown Expo Hall is dedicated to the memory of former City Commissioner and Wichita Mayor Bob Brown. The following text is from the dedication plaque at Bob Brown Expo Hall:

Dedicated to the memory of Bob Brown who unselfishly served his community, including City Commissioner 1979-1987 and Wichita Mayor 1981-82 and 1985-86. Bob's contributions were not offered in what he said, but in what he was - a truly devout man, a lover of life, of nature, a giver and thanks giver, a humble man of soaring spirit.
