Throwback Thursday: Phog Allen Edition, Part II

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!

Happy birthday, Phog Allen! The legendary KU basketball coach was born on November 18, 1885.
