1963 Wichita Dreamliners baseball bat
Date: 1963
These photographs show the commemorative baseball bat received by Gil Carter as a member of the Wichita Rapid Transit Dreamliners semi-pro baseball team in 1963. That year, the Dreamliner team successfully defended its state and national semi-pro titles by winning tournaments at both levels sponsored by the National Baseball Congress. In the state tournament, the Dreamliners defeated Wichita Service Auto Glassmen by a 6-5 score in the eleventh inning of the final game. In the national tournament, the Dreamliners bested Ponchatoula, Louisiana by a score of 5-4 in the title game. Both tournaments were held in Wichita. Gil Carter was an outfielder for the 1963 Dreamliners. He also was in the starting lineup for the Dreamliners in 1962, when the team won its first state and national semi-pro titles (see Kansas Memory number 310423). Digital images of the commemorative bat were created through a joint project sponsored by the Kansas Historical Society and the Shawnee County Baseball Hall of Fame.

Aerial view of Menninger east campus in Topeka, Kansas

Aerial view of Menninger east campus in Topeka, Kansas
Date: 1963
An aerial view of Menninger East Campus. The Children's Unit is in the left background and Topeka State Hospital is in the upper right background. Arguably, the major contribution of Menninger may be that at a time when custodial care or the asylum were the only alternatives for the mentally ill, the Menninger's brought a positive commitment to psychiatry when they opened the doors to their sanitarium in 1925 and admitted its first 13 patients. They did not believe that the fate of mentally ill people was to be warehoused; they believed mental illness could be treated. The Menninger's brought hope for troubled persons everywhere. In May, 1925, The Menninger Sanitarium Corporation purchased the 20 acre farm and the farmhouse became the clinic and the surrounding 20 acres were developed with buildings and gardens to become the "East Campus" of the Menninger Foundation. In 1982, the "West Campus", a much larger area was developed west of Topeka. In 2003, the Menninger Foundation was moved to Houston, Texas.

Anonymous resident to the governor's wife

Anonymous resident to the governor's wife
Date: August 20, 1963
An anonymous Kansas resident writes the wife of Governor John Anderson Jr. of Topeka concerning a proposed atheist colony near Stockton, Kansas. The author expresses her opposition to the colony and regards it as a plot of communist Russia. Madalyn Murray [O'Hair] of Baltimore, Maryland, proposed the colony after the Supreme Court decision in Murray v. Curlett (1963) declared prayer in schools unconstitutional. Ms. Murray formed Other Americans, Inc. (a Maryland corporation) to advance atheist interests and establish an atheist colony in Kansas. Carl Brown, a farmer near Stockton and former Kansas state senator, served as a director of that corporation. Mr. Brown, an avowed atheist, deeded 160 acres of land near Stockton to the corporation. During the 1950s and 1960s, the national debate over the role of religion in public life centered on the use of prayer in public schools. Many people associated atheists with communists and approached this issue from the larger context of the cold war. Historical Society staff removed the author's name and place of residence from this copy of the letter to comply with her request for privacy.
