The Dighton doctor was chosen by circumstance, my grandfather reasoned. But he was killed by design, plain and simple. Dr. Wineinger was a casualty of a bank robbery gone wrong.The yellowing pages, the fading letters from the old Underwood Standard Typewriter, and the editor’s corrections…some in pencil, some in ink, tell a story. The notes scribbled in the margins are the last my grandfather, W.T. Caldwell would make while living the final chapter of his own life. It’s been nearly 90 years since he first set out to tell the story of a family that journeyed from Iowa, to establish a new home on the raw western Kansas prairie in the 1880s. A home that would one day become the talk of the nation when groups of men and women gathered to discuss current topics and relate the most recent exploits of desperadoes. These pages chronicle a series of events and recount the killing of a bank president, his son John, an assistant bank teller named Everett Kesinger, and the execution-style murder of William Wineinger, a prominent country doctor from the small town of Dighton, Kansas. These four men would die by the hands of a ruthless Wolf Pack in May of 1928.
