These four photographs show Topekan Clifford (Bud) Fawl in baseball-related poses at various ages. The earliest is from 1940, when Fawl was ten years old. The others were taken when he was a member of the Topeka High School and Topeka Mosby-Mack American Legion teams. Fawl, whose primary position was third base, played on at least four state baseball championship teams, including three Legion teams (Mosby-Macks, 1945-47) and one at Topeka High (1947). Following his high school graduation in 1948, Fawl attended the University of Michigan on a baseball scholarship and graduated with a degree in psychology. He earned advanced degrees at the University of Kansas, and was on the faculty in the Department of Psychology at Nebraska Wesleyan University for nearly four decades, serving most of that time as department head. Fawl's father, also named Clifford, was active in Topeka's youth baseball community for many years and coached three American Legion teams to state titles. Digital reproduction of the photographs was accomplished through a joint project sponsored by the Kansas Historical Society and the Shawnee County Baseball Hall of Fame.
