Superman, Naismith To Join Kansas Hall of Fame
06/12/2013

Superman, the inventor of basketball, legendary 1970s rock band Kansas and the 1st Kansas Colored Infantry Regiment are among the 2013 class of inductees in the Kansas Hall of Fame.

Dr. James Naismith, who moved to Lawrence from Massachusetts in 1898, brought basketball to the University of Kansas and put the sport on the map. He and other inductees will be honored June 21 at a ceremony at Washburn University.

Naismith is the only losing coach in Kansas basketball history and his original rules of basketball will soon be on permanent display at the university. He is buried in Lawrence and the Jayhawks play in an arena on Naismith Drive.

Superman is said to have arrived from Krypton and lived in Smallville, Kan., the son of Jonathan and Martha Kent.
