From the Lawrence Daily World for Sept. 2, 1909: “Walter Fisher who lives in the 1200 block of Kentucky was killed yesterday by the accidental discharge of a target rifle at Brown’s Grove. Mr. Fisher was conducting a shooting gallery at the Harvest Home picnic. A loaded gun had been placed on the counter and in some way was accidentally discharged as Fisher passed in front of the muzzle.”
