These three black and white photographs show scenes from Kansas Governor Fred Hall's administration. He began his political career in 1950, when he sought the Republican nomination for Lieutenant Governor and was elected to that office in the November general election. Hall was re-elected, in 1952, and served until his term expired in 1955. He campaigned for governor in 1954 on a platform calling for reform. Hall wanted to clean up Topeka, Kansas, just like President Eisenhower had cleaned up Washington, D.C. He defeated the Democratic challenger George Docking to become the thirty-third governor of Kansas, (1955-1957).
The images show him walking down a hall with other people, with Boy Scouts, and going through a reception line.
