These two photographs show Robert Crozier, 1827-1895. A native from Ohio who migrated to the Kansas Territory in 1856 to practice law in Leavenworth, Kansas. He was also instrumental in establishing the Leavenworth Daily Times. In 1861, Robert was appointed by President Abraham Lincoln to serve as the United States attorney for the district of Kansas; a position Crozier held until 1864 when he resigned to become the fourth chief justice of the Kansas Supreme Court, 1864-1867. He continued his career as a public servant when he was appointed by Governor Osborn in 1873 to the United States Senate to fill the unexpired term of Alexander Caldwell.
