The crew at Stevenson Company’s workshop came up with a handy slide for the North Pole as featured in a production of “A Christmas Story the Musical” at Topeka Civic Theatre. In the classic production, grumpy Santa kicks little Ralphie down the slide at Higbee’s department store.

Though he was born in Pennsylvania, Dr. Samuel J. Crumbine made history in Kansas. Dr. Crumbine’s pioneering public health practices established food safety and sanitation practices in the United States. Crumbine did some medical training in Cincinnati before migrating to Kansas with his wife. Dr. Crumbine made a reputation for himself as the feisty doctor who strolled the streets of Dodge City in a Prince Albert coat and a holstered six-shooter.
Dr. Crumbine’s first contribution to public health improvement was at a small restaurant in Dodge City. Being a frequent diner, Dr. Crumbine convinced the management to serve milk in individual bottles instead of open jugs or pitchers. This served as a safer and more sanitary dispensing process.
