TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas Hall of Fame will hold an induction ceremony Friday evening for new honorees including 1936 presidential candidate Alf Landon, famed newspaper editor William Allen White and a major railroad.

The event is at the Great Overland Station Museum, a former railroad depot in north Topeka. The inductees include six individuals and the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway, a key institution in the state's history.

Cyrus K. Holliday, an early director of the railroad, is also among the honorees. He was one of the founders of Topeka.

Besides White, who edited the Emporia Gazette, and Landon, who served as governor, the inductees include Landon's daughter, former U.S. Sen. Nancy Kassebaum Baker.

Also on the list are scientist and inventor George Washington Carver and actor Ed Asner.
