This black and white photograph shows Governor Walter Huxman on horseback in Anthony, Kansas. Huxman was elected as the 27th governor of Kansas on November 3, 1936. 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 Untied States Court of Appeals for the Tenth District in Topeka, Kansas. 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. The other person in the photo is identified as Virgil Patterson.
