A.L. Coffman campaign photo and card

A.L. Coffman campaign photo and card
Creator: Hathaway, Corliss
Date: 1960
This studio portrait of Albert Leaverne Coffman of Topeka was taken in 1960 to be used in his primary campaign for Shawnee County Sheriff. Also shown is a small campaign card. Coffman (who was known as Al, Vern, or most often, by his nickname 'Pooch'), operated a service station on the southeast corner of California and 10th streets in Topeka. He was perhaps best known in the community as manager of the Topeka Decker Oilers semi-pro baseball team in the late 1940s and 1950s. During that period, the Decker Oiler team was a perennial contender for the state semi-pro title, competing each year in the state tournament in Wichita. The team won the state championship in 1948, placed second in three consecutive years (1950-1952), and finished third in 1955 and 1957. Coffman's political campaign for sheriff was unsuccessful; he finished second of three contenders in the Democratic primary. Digital reproduction of the photograph was accomplished through a joint project sponsored by the Kansas Historical Society and the Shawnee County Baseball Hall of Fame.

Date: Between 1928 and 1965
This black and white photograph shows the Adair-Brown cabin at the John Brown Memorial Park in Osawatomie, Kansas. The structure built around 1854 by Samuel Glenn was sold, in 1855, to John Brown's brother-in-law Samuel Lyle Adair. The cabin provided a home for the Adair family but was frequently used by Brown for abolitionist activities. In 1912, the structure was moved to the highest point in the John Brown Memorial Park which is also the site of the "Battle of Osawatomie" where John Brown and thirty free-state defenders fought in 1856 against 250 pro-slavery militia. A stone pavilion was built in 1928 to protect the cabin's exterior. The state legislature appointed the Kansas Historical Society to maintain the site and in 1971 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
