Throwback Thursday: Canine Mascot Edition

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 34,800 images from KU’s University Archives and made them available online; be sure to check them out!

National Dog Day is this Saturday, but you can celebrate a little early with this week’s photograph.
