E. H. Funston home in Allen County, Kansas

Multiple images of the Edward Hogue Funston home, located in Allen County, Kansas. The father of General Fred Funston was born at Donnelsville, Clark County, Ohio, on September 16, 1836, and married Ann Eliza Mitchell in September 1861. He served throughout the Civil War in the Sixteenth Ohio Battery. He moved his family to Kansas in December 1867 where he established a prosperous, diversified farm just north of Iola. E. H. Funston was an officer in the Kansas State Agricultural Society and the State Board of Agriculture and served in Kansas House of Representatives (1873-1875) and the Kansas Senate (1881-1885), before winning election to the U.S. Congress in 1884. Funston expressed interest in (and made some effort to obtain) the Republican nomination for governor and congressman from the second district and continued to use his powerful voice to speak out on issues of interest to him and many of his Allen county neighbors until his death on September 10, 1911.

Dr. C. F. Menninger and sons

These three photographs show Dr. C. F. Menninger, Dr. Karl, and Dr. Will, and Edwin. Dr. C. F. Menninger, with sons Will and Karl, founded the nation's first group psychiatry practice, in 1919 in Topeka. In 1925 in an old farmhouse, they started the Menninger Clinic on the west edge of Topeka, Kansas. The farmhouse became the inpatient clinic and the surrounding 20 acres were developed with buildings and gardens to become the "East Campus" of the Menninger Foundation. In 1982, the "West Campus", a much larger area, was developed west of Topeka, a residential scale community of 28 structures on a 350 acre hilltop campus. In 2003, the Menninger Foundation was moved to Houston, Texas. Edwin's interests were in horticulture, also a strong interest of Dr. C.F. evidenced by the first horticulture therapy program and the landscaping on both campus.
