Summary: This formal portrait shows Frederick Lee Hall, 1916-1970, a lawyer from Dodge City, Kansas. He was elected in 1950 as the Republican Lieutenant Governor of Kansas, beating out a field of eight candidates, to serve with Governor Edward Arn. Hall was re-elected to the office and served until 1952. He continued his career in politics by running for Kansas Governor in 1954. In the November general election he defeated his Democratic challenger George Docking to become the thirty-third Governor of Kansas, serving from 1955 to 1957. Hall served one term as governor and was unsuccessful in his attempt for a second term. He resigned in the final days of his administration and on January 11, 1957, accepted an appointment as Justice of the Kansas Supreme Court from his former Lieutenant Governor, who was now Governor, John Berridge McCuish, in a political move called "the triple play." Fred served as Justice from 1957 to 1958. He resigned from the bench in 1958 to run for the governor's office again. Hall was defeated in the primary by Clyde M. Reed.
