This photograph shows Kansas Lieutenant Governor Fred Lee Hall, 1916-1970, campaigning for governor in Dodge City, Kansas. Hall's platform was calling for reform to clean up Topeka, Kansas, similarly to President Eisenhower's efforts to clean up Washington, D. C. In the November general election he defeats his Democratic challenger George Docking to become the thirty-third governor of Kansas, serving from 1955 to 1957. Hall serves one term as governor and is unsuccessful in his attempt for a second term. He resigns in the final days of his administration on January 11, 1957 accepting the appointment as justice of the Kansas Supreme Court from 1957 to 1958. He resigned from the bench in 1958 to run for the governor's office again. Hall is defeated in the primary by Clyde M. Reed. This lost closes out Halls' career in politics.
