This black and white photograph shows Governor Walter Huxman (in the center) sitting on bales of straw with a group of gentlemen at a unidentified location. On November 3, 1936, Huxman was elected the twenty-seventh governor of Kansas (1937-1939). He served only one term and was defeated, in the 1938, general election by Republican candidate Payne Ratner. Huxman left office on January 9, 1939, to return to private life. However within a few months, on April 24, 1939, President Franklin D. Roosevelt nominated Huxman to the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth District. He held this position until stepping down in 1962 due to declining health. Judge Huxman passed away on June 25, 1972, at the age of eighty-five. Burial was at the Memorial Park Cemetery in Topeka, Kansas.
