Throwback Thursday: Outdoor Relaxation 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!

Rain may be in Lawrence’s forecast for this weekend, but today is beautiful and sunny – perfect for relaxing outside like the former KU students in this week’s picture.
