The L. W. (Leslie Winfield) Halbe photo collection consists of 1500 glass plate negatives produced by Halbe during his teenage years. Halbe lived in Dorrance, Russell County, Kansas, and began taking photographs of the region with an inexpensive Sears and Roebuck camera when he was fifteen years old.


Emily Morgan

These two black and white photographs show Emily Morgan (1878-1960). The first image is Emily's 1908 graduation from the Methodist Hospital, formally the Ensworth Nurses Training School, in St. Joseph, Missouri. The second photograph shows Emily dressed in a fur parka and wearing mukluks. A native of Leon, Kansas, and a World War I and II nurse, Emily was assigned in 1923 to work as a public nurse in Nome, Alaska. When the town was stricken in 1925 with a diphtheria epidemic, she risked her life by walking in subzero weather to vaccinate the townspeople. The epidemic eventually subsided, and Emily returned to Kansas to resume her career as a Red Cross nurse. Over the years, she returned to Alaska to care for the sick, always returning to Kansas. On May 8, 1960, "The Angel of the Yukon", as Emily was called by The Anchorage Times, passed away at the age of eighty-two in El Dorado, Kansas. In 2013 Morgan was inducted into the Alaska Women's Hall of Fame for her heroic efforts in 1925.
