Memorial service planned for former U.S. Senator

A memorial service for former U.S. Senator James B. Pearson will be held at 11 a.m., Friday, April 3, at First United Methodist Church in Baldwin City. The public is invited to attend.

Pearson, a former member of the Baker University Board of Trustees, died on Jan. 13, at age 88. He lived part time in Baldwin City after his retirement from the Senate.

A Navy transport pilot in World War II and later a Kansas Senator and Republican State Chairman, Pearson was appointed by Kansas Gov. John Anderson to fill the vacant seat left by the death of Sen. Andrew Schoeppel in January 1962. In the primary election that year he defeated former Republican Gov. Ed Arn and then won the general election. He went on to win two full six-year terms before retiring from the Senate in 1979.
