Throwback Thursday: Candy Edition

November 3rd, 2016

Each week we’ll be posting a photograph from University Archives that shows a scene from KU’s past. We’ve also scanned more than 30,100 images from KU’s University Archives and made them available online; be sure to check them out!

Tomorrow is National Candy Day, a good excuse to indulge in some leftover Halloween treats!
