This photograph shows U. S. Circuit Judges Sam Bratton, Orie L. Phillips and Walter A. Huxman, ( from left to right). In 1939, President Franklin D. Roosevelt appointed Huxman, the twenty-seventh governor of Kansas, (1937-1939), to the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth District in Topeka, Kansas. During his tenure year on the bench, Huxman delivered a number of legal opinions but the most memorable was, on June 25, 1951, when the court found " no willful intentional or substantial discrimination" in the Brown v Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas.
