Throwback Thursday: Family Vacation 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 5,700 images from KU’s University Archives and made them available online; be sure to check them out!
The fall semester may be right around the corner, but it’s not too late for a fun family vacation!
