The photo is of Senator Bob Dole in 1942 while on the KU track team. The photographer is unknown but the photo is housed in the Robert J. Dole Archive, Dole Institute of Politics..Bob Dole, 1976. "When I was 18, 19, 20, my primary interest was how fast I could run and how well I could do out on the basketball floor....whether I could catch a football. That seemed to be the greatest goal in life."--Bob Dole. In December 1942, after Pearl Harbor, Dole enlisted in the army. The rest is history. Photo submitted by Alison Carter
