This halftone print was probably cut from a campaign pamphlet. It shows Kansas Representative William Lambertson with his wife and children in 1937, standing together before a clapboard house. The Congressman autographed the photo and wrote the inscription “the Boy Scouts are great” on the reverse. Lambertson was active in politics most of his adult life, including 16 years in the House.
