Throwback Thursday: Picnic 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 3,600 images from KU’s University Archives and made them available online; be sure to check them out!

We’ve been enjoying some gorgeous, and unseasonably warm, spring weather on Mount Oread. It’s the perfect time to take a cue from these early KU students and enjoy a picnic!
