Throwback Thursday: Kansas City Bound 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!

The KU men’s basketball team faces Purdue tonight in Kansas City, playing for a spot in the Elite 8 of the NCAA tournament. Good luck, Jayhawks!
