Throwback Thursday: Family Weekend 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 1,700 images from KU’s University Archives and made them available online; be sure to check them out!

We selected this week’s picture in honor of Jayhawk Family Weekend, taking place on campus this Saturday and Sunday.
