These six black and white photographs show a reception for Nancy Landon Kassebaum's induction to the United State Senate, (1978-1997), in Topeka, Kansas. Kassebaum was the first woman elected to the Senate in her own right rather than filling the vacancy previously held by a spouse. The first photograph shows Kassebaum standing beside the thirty-eighth President of the United States Gerald Ford. In the third image some of the people have identified at the head table as follows: the second person from the left is Kassebaum's father Alfred M. Landon. The fourth and fifth persons from the left are Senator Bob Dole and the thirty-ninth Governor of Kansas Robert F. Bennett. She later married Howard Baker, a Senator from Tennessee.

Date: October 24, 1978
