Throwback Thursday: Homecoming 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!

We are celebrating KU’s 108th Homecoming this week with a look at a piece of ephemera from the 1939 event.
