Fire Chiefs eating doughnuts

I wanted to highlight a photo this morning in acknowledgement of National Doughnut Day. A search for “doughnut” in the JoCoHistory photo database yielded one single result: this snapshot of firefighters drinking coffee and eating doughnuts.


Interestingly, there is a nearly identical photo in the book History of Firefighting in Johnson County, Kansas, published in 1978. Thus we know that this group is the  Fire Chief’s Association at a 1952 meeting at Monticello station (present day Shawnee). The Chiefs from the county’s various municipalities are represented here.
