Baseball game in progress

Baseball game in progress
Date: 1911
This photo postcard from 1911 features a baseball game in progress, probably in or near Westmoreland, Kansas. The pitcher is thought to be William Bert Hart, who was a well-known semi-professional player in northern Kansas during the 1910s and early 1920s. Both a pitcher and infielder, Bert Hart played not only for the Westmoreland town team, but also for semi-pro teams in Green, Clay Center, and Beloit. In 1920, with Hart as its regular shortstop and occasional pitcher, the Beloit Leaguers salaried team claimed the "independent state championship of Kansas." The postcard is addressed to Hart, who was visiting a relative in Manchester at the time it was sent. The "Wiley" referenced in the message probably was Wiley Taylor from Louisville, Kansas. Taylor was a professional baseball player who pitched for Austin during the 1911 season, and who made his major league debut for Detroit later that fall.

Charles H. Hyer

Charles H. Hyer
Date: 1911
This is a photograph of Charles H. Hyer, who owned The Hyer Boot Company. Hyer, the son of an immigrant German shoemaker, settled in Leavenworth in 1870 and worked, for a time, building railroads. He soon moved to Olathe and got a job teaching shoe and harness making at the Kansas School for the Deaf. With money he saved, he opened his own shoemaking shop in Olathe and asked his brother, Ed, to join him in running the business. In the years that followed, the Hyers developed a measurement chart to send out with their flyers that enabled customers, even cowboys at the remotest ranches, to order custom made boots to fit their precise size and fashion preference. The business blossomed and, by 1900, it had grown from two employees to 15. During World War I, the Hyers made boots for the officers at Fort Leavenworth and at Camp Funston. By the 1960s more than 70 people were busy making boots for a worldwide clientele. This photograph was taken while Hyer, a Republican, was serving in the 1911 Kansas House of Representatives representating District 10 from Olathe, Kansas.


Charles Hadsell house near John Brown's fort, Linn County, Kansas

Charles Hadsell house near John Brown's fort, Linn County, Kansas
Date: 1911
This is a photograph of the Charles Hadsell house that was built near John Brown's fort, close to the Marais des Cygnes massacre site. On May 19, 1858, Missouri border ruffian Charles Hamilton and some 30 other men rode through the village of Trading Post, Kansas, where they captured 11 free-state men. The Missourians marched them into a ravine where they opened fire upon them. Five of the men were killed, five were seriously injured, and one escaped unharmed. John Brown, arriving at the scene toward the end of June 1858, built a "fort" some 220 yards south of the ravine. The land on which the fort was built belonged to Eli Snider, a blacksmith. Later he sold it to Brown's friend Charles C. Hadsall, who agreed to let Brown occupy it for military purposes. Brown and his men withdrew at the end of the summer, leaving the fort to Hadsall. In later years Hadsall built a stone house adjoining the site of Brown's fort, enclosing the spring within the walls of the first floor. In 1941 the Kansas legislature authorized acceptance of the massacre site, including Hadsall's house, as a gift to the state from the Pleasanton Post, Veterans of Foreign Wars. In 1961 it provided funds for the restoration of the building, and, in 1963, the entire property was turned over to the Kansas Historical Society for administration. A museum was established in the upper floor of the building in 1964. Today the park is operated as Marais des Cygnes Massacre State Historic Site. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971, and as a National Historic Landmark in 1974.
