Portrait of Hugh Cameron, 1826-1908, "The Kansas Hermit". He walked from Kansas City to Lawrence in 1854, staked out a claim and later named it "Camp Ben Harrison." In 1896 he made a pilgrimage to Albuquerque, carrying a message of forgiveness to former U. S. Senator Edmund G. Ross from the people of Kansas. Civil War Kansans had blamed Ross for saving President Andrew Johnson from impeachment. Cameron at one time lived in a tree near Lawrence.
