Dodge City and Ford County, Kansas     1870-1920 Janis Dawson
I purchased a copy of "Tenth Nimitz Hall Annual Kansas Soldiers' Home Fort Dodge, Kansas 1968" at an auction.   The inscription inside the cover reads "To Webster Doze From Vetrice Price".  It is hand typed and states that a copy was given to each member and employee annually since 1959.  The annual contains stories written by the residents and employees of Nimitz Hall.  I would be willing to do lookups in this annual.
