Alice Sudlow Ash video interview on experiences in World War II (transcript)
Creator: Ash, Alice Sudlow
Date: November 3, 2007
Alice Sudlow enlisted in the WAVE: Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service (U.S. Navy) in 1943 and served until 1945. Interviewed by Suzette McCord-Rogers on Nov 3, 2007, Ash talked about military experiences in the Second World War.

She served the rest of her enlistment in Jacksonville, Florida, repairing airplane engines. She was born in Holton in 1924 and graduated from Holton High School in 1942. After she married Don Ash, she lived in Circleville, Kansas. The 2005 Kansas Legislature passed a bill funding the WWII Veterans Oral History grant program. This transcript is from one of the community institutions receiving grants. The transcript of the interview is presented here; the original video copy of the interview is available through the Doniphan County Historical Society (Troy) and through the Kansas State Historical Society.


Jess, Charles and Virgil Barnes in St. Petersburg, Florida

Jess, Charles and Virgil Barnes in St. Petersburg, Florida
Date: March 1924
This photograph is of three Barnes brothers from Jackson County, Kansas (from left to right): Jess Barnes, Charles Barnes, and Virgil Barnes. The photo was made in March 1924 in St. Petersburg, Florida. At the time, Jess and Virgil Barnes were major league pitchers--Jess for the Boston Braves and Virgil, for the New York Giants. Charles, also a pitcher, tried out with the Braves during spring training camp, but did not make the roster. The photo opportunity occurred when the Braves and Giants met in an exhibition game on March 22, although none of the brothers appeared in the lineup that day. The image was published in the April 3, 1924 issue of The Sporting News. Jess Barnes' career spanned the period 1915 through 1927, and involved three different teams--Boston Braves, New York Giants, and Brooklyn Robins. His overall record was 152 wins and 150 losses, with an ERA of 3.22. His best years were with the Giants, where he led the National League in wins in 1919, had two World Series wins in 1921, and pitched a no-hitter in 1922. Virgil "Zeke" Barnes pitched seven full seasons in the majors. He joined the New York Giants full-time in 1922 and stayed with the team most of his career. He had 61 major league wins, and a career ERA of 3.66. He made World Series appearances in 1923 and 1924, including the starting assignment in Game 7 of the 1924 World Series. On June 26, 1924, Jess and Virgil Barnes became the first pair of brothers to oppose each other as starters in a major league game--Jess for the Braves and Virgil for the Giants. Not pictured in the photograph is the youngest brother in the family, Clark Barnes. Clark also was a pitcher who received a tryout at the major league level. Like Charles, however, he did not make a major league roster. The four Barnes brothers and their three sisters were raised in Circleville, Kansas, by their parents, Luther and Sade Barnes.

Date: 1903-1904

Virgil Barnes and others

Virgil Barnes and others
Date: Between 1920 and 1928
These group photographs from the 1920s all include Virgil Barnes of Jackson County, Kansas. Barnes was a major league pitcher in the 1920s who played most of his games with the New York Giants. The images are undated and were taken in different settings. Although the other individuals in the photos are not identified, at least some of them were likely Barnes' teammates. A right-handed pitcher, Virgil "Zeke" Barnes played seven complete seasons at the major league level. He had 61 major league wins, with a career ERA of 3.66. His best year was 1924, when he had an ERA of 3.06 and a record of 16-10. Barnes made World Series appearances in 1923 and 1924, including the starting assignment in Game 7 of the 1924 World Series. Barnes was born in Ontario, Kansas, in 1897 and was raised in the nearby town of Circleville. During his major league years, Barnes lived during the off-season in rural Jackson County with his wife Della and their two children. In the mid-1930s, the family moved to Wichita, where Barnes lived until his death in 1958.


Virgil Barnes in Horton baseball uniform in Horton, Kansas

Virgil Barnes in Horton baseball uniform in Horton, Kansas
Date: 1917
This is a photograph of Virgil Barnes, of Circleville, outfitted in Horton's Company B baseball uniform. The photograph is not marked but, likely, was taken in 1917, following the U.S. entry into World War I. Horton's Company B, of the First Kansas Regiment, mustered into national service in August 1917 and bivouacked in Horton before being sent to Oklahoma for training in early October. In the photo's background are army-style tents used to house soldiers. Barnes' jersey is clearly marked as belonging to the Horton Company B baseball team, and he presumably played for the team on the day the photo was made. However, Barnes was a member of Jackson County's Company B of the Second Kansas Regiment, based in Holton. Both the Horton and Holton units were sent to Camp Doniphan in Oklahoma for training, where they were consolidated into Company B, 137th Infantry Regiment, of the Army's 35th Division. The 137th Infantry deployed for France in April 1918, and took part in the epic Meuse-Argonne battle in late September 1918. Barnes was gassed during the battle, and was hospitalized for a time. After the war, Virgil Barnes pursued a professional baseball career. A right-handed pitcher, he played seven complete seasons at the major league level, primarily for the New York Giants. He had 61 major league wins, with a career ERA of 3.66. His best year was 1924, when he had an ERA of 3.06 and a record of 16-10. Barnes made World Series appearances in 1923 and 1924, including the starting assignment in Game 7 of the 1924 World Series. Virgil Barnes was born in Ontario, Kansas, in 1897, and was raised in the nearby town of Circleville. His older brother Jess also was a major league pitcher for several years. Two younger brothers, Charles and Clark, received tryouts with major league teams but did not make their rosters.
