Throwback Thursday: Kick Off 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!

This week, we celebrate the start of the 2014 football season on Saturday with this image of the old scoreboard at Memorial Stadium. You can learn more about the history of this building at the KU Places Directory and the KU History website.
