Group at Maximo Point, near St. Petersburg, Florida
Date: 1914
This group photograph was taken at Maximo Point near St. Petersburg, Florida in March 1914 and includes members of the St. Louis Browns baseball team. The team was in St. Petersburg for spring training. Individuals in the photo are not identified, but two Kansans were on the Browns team in 1914--Wiley Taylor, a right-handed pitcher from Louisville, Kansas and Earl Hamilton, a left-handed pitcher from Oswego, Kansas. Wiley Taylor started his professional baseball career in 1910 with the minor league Ellsworth team of the Central Kansas League. He had trial outings with the Detroit Tigers and the Chicago White Sox, but most of his major league games (21 of 27) were with the St. Louis Browns, where he played in 1913-14. Taylor's major league record was 2-10, with an ERA of 4.10. After his baseball career, he remained in Pottawatomie County, where he farmed and served four terms as the county sheriff (1925-28 and 1945-48). Late in life, he also ran a service station and a recreation parlor in Westmoreland. Wiley Taylor died at the age of 65 in 1954. Earl Hamilton was born in Illinois in 1891, but moved with his family to Kansas as a youth and lived in Oswego during much of his major league career. He pitched in the majors for 14 seasons, from 1911 to 1924, mostly with the St. Louis Browns and the Pittsburgh Pirates. Hamilton's major league record was 115-147, with an ERA of 3.16. His achievements included a no-hitter against the Detroit Tigers in 1912. After his pitching career, Hamilton was active as a minor league team owner; he owned the Topeka Owls in 1942. Earl Hamilton died in California in 1968.


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.

Creator: Munster, Sebastian, 1489-1552
Date: Between A.D. 1552 and A.D. 1568
Hand-tinted woodcut map of the New World. The map's text is in Latin, except for a French title that translates as, "Map of the new islands which are called the islands of the West or of the Indies." This map was the first to depict North and South America as separate from the rest of the world's land masses yet connected to each other by land. North America is labeled "Terra florida." Forests and mountains are indicated on the continents, and cannibals are depicted as living in present-day Brazil. All land masses and oceans are presented out of proper perspective. This map appeared in a French edition of the book Cosmographia by the German cartographer Sebastian Münster. The book was widely read, with about forty editions printed during the century following its first appearance in 1544.

These two photographs are of a fishing outing in which Virgil Barnes, of Jackson County,Kansas, participated. The details of the photos were not recorded.

Virgil Barnes was a right-handed pitcher who 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. Barnes was born in Ontario, Kansas, in 1897 and was raised in the nearby town of Circleville.

In the mid-1930s, the family moved to Wichita, where Barnes lived until his death in 1958. Barnes' 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 they did not make their rosters.
