A photograph of Frederick Funston posed with the Reconstruction Committee in San Francisco, California. In 1906 he did much to keep law and order in San Francisco and to provide relief to sufferers of the great earthquake. Funston, who grew up in Iola, Kansas, became one of America's most famous military figures. He served with the Cubans who were fighting for independence from Spain, commanded the 20th Kansas Infantry during the Philippine Insurrection, and led American troops on the Texas border during the Punitive Expedition into Mexico.
