Kansas To Add 3 Names To Walk Of Fame

KSCB News - October 10, 2012 8:15 am

Three more names of distinguished Kansas

residents are being enshrined on the grounds of the Statehouse as

part of the growing Walk of Honor.

Aviator Amelia Earhart, Vice President Charles Curtis and

microchip inventor Jack Kilby will join U.S. Sen. Bob Dole on the

sidewalks in Topeka. Bronze plaques honoring the three will be

unveiled Wednesday by Gov. Sam Brownback and the Kansas Historical

Society.

Earhart, born in Atchison, was the first woman to fly solo

across the Atlantic Ocean. Curtis was the first and only American

Indian and only Kansan to serve as vice president, joining the

ticket of President Herbert Hoover.

Kilby was a Nobel Prize winning engineer who invented the

microchip and changed technology for generations.
