Inside Spencer: The KSRL Blog

Throwback Thursday: Confetti and Streamers 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 34,500 images from KU’s University Archives and made them available online; be sure to check them out!

Happy New Year, Jayhawks! We don’t have any information about the context of this week’s photograph, but the students’ fun adornments definitely remind us of a New Year’s celebration.
