These two black and white photographs show scenes from Fred Hall's re-election campaign in Wichita, Kansas. Hall, the thirty-third governor of Kansas, (1955-1957), lost the 1956 gubernatorial primary to challenger Warren W. Shaw. In the final days of his administration, on January 11, 1957, he resigned to accept the appointment as justice of the Kansas Supreme Court, (1957-1958). In the spring of 1958, he stepped down from the bench to attempt another run for the governor's office and was defeated in the primary by Clyde Reed. With the loss, Hall closed out his political career and returned to private life. On March 18, 1970, at the age of fifty-three, he died at his home in Shawnee, Kansas.
