This is a campaign brochure for Kansas First District Congressman Keith Sebelius. The brochure was mailed to Jack and Hazel Carlin, Smolan, Kansas. The son of the local dentist, Keith G. Sebelius was born in Almena, Norton County, Kansas, on September 10, 1916, and attended Almena public schools. He graduated from Fort Hays Kansas State College in 1939 and the George Washington University Law School in 1942. Sebelius practiced law in Kansas and the District of Columbia and served in the military during World War II and the Korean conflict. He was city councilman, mayor, and city attorney of Almena, Norton County attorney, mayor of Norton, and a state senator (appointed in 1962 and elected in 1964). In 1968 he was elected to the U.S. Congress (served, January 3, 1969-January 3, 1981). After representing the people of Kansas's "Big First" District for a dozen years, Congressman Sebelius chose not to seek reelection in 1980 and returned to his law practice in Norton, where he died on September 5, 1982.
