Submissions for ‘Memory Wall’ exceed capacity

July 18, 2003

Advertisement

About 1,000 8-inch-by-10-inch photographs of Kansas World War II veterans will look down on visitors to the new Dole Institute of Politics from their permanent perch on the Memory Wall just inside the front entrance.

Most of the faces are disarmingly young as they peer out from under their military caps in studio portraits. Others stand beside the family car for a snapshot, probably taken on their last home leave when they had no idea where they were going or when they'd return. Others lean on jeeps or airplanes. At least one straddles a vintage motorcycle. There are a few groups of twos or threes, and more than one is standing beside their mother.

Richard Norton Smith, director of the Dole Institute, said the idea for the Memory Wall came from a conversation he had with Bob Dole. Dole wanted to find a way to honor his brother, Kenny, and other Kansas veterans.

The wall initially was to include about 450 photos, but demand was so great Smith decided to expand it to 962. Still, the Dole Institute has received more than twice that number.

Identifications are in alphabetical order by last names.
