Alfred Mossman “Alf” Landon (September 9, 1887 – October 12, 1987) was governor of Kansas (1933–1937) and the Republican candidate for President of the United States in 1936. He only managed to win the states of Maine and Vermont in his challenge of the Democrat incumbent Franklin D. Roosevelt. Landon only managed to garner 28% of the black vote following Roosevelt's New Deal program and corrupt political machines in cities such as Chicago.[1]

His daughter, Nancy Landon Kassebaum Baker, was a United States Senator from Kansas from 1978 to 1997, using the name Kassebaum. Elected to the U.S. Senate in 1978, she was re-elected in 1984 and 1990 but did not run again in 1996, and the seat was won by Republican Pat Roberts, who retired in 2020 and was succeeded by Roger Marshall.

He was a liberal Republican, very similar to Wendell Willkie.[2]
