Alice Gardiner Sennrich

Sennrich, Alice G.

This black and white photograph shows Alice Gardiner Sennrich, (1878-1968), photographer from Valley Falls, Kansas. The daughter of Tom Gardiner and Mattie Kirkpatrick Gardiner of Winchester, Kansas, she moved in 1880 with her family to Valley Falls where her father established the Valley Falls Register newspaper. As a young woman growing up in a small Kansas community, Alice choose an unconventional career in photography. On January 1, 1902, she purchased the C.S. Edington photography studio in Valley Falls and within a few years was making a name for herself as a Kansas photographer. In 1909, the Photographers Association of Kansas awarded her a first prize medal for her photos of children. She also received a gold medal and a prize of five dollars for her style of retouching photos. In 1915 as her business began to flourish, she married John Sennrich a carpenter and painter from Valley Falls. After their marriage, the couple remained in Valley Falls so Alice could continue to operate her business. For a number of years Alice's artistic eye captured life in a typical northeast Kansas community until she began to loose her eyesight in the 1950s. As her eyesight deteriorated, she could no longer maintain her studio and donated her equipment and props to the Kansas Historical Society. She was blind the last ten years of her life. In 1968, Alice Gardiner Sennrich passed away at the age of ninety at a nursing home in Valley Falls, Kansas.

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.
