Throwback Thursday: Fall Colors 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!

It’s starting look like autumn on Mount Oread, with leaves and colors similar to the scene in this week’s picture!
