Throwback Thursday: Sweater Weather 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 34,800 images from KU’s University Archives and made them available online; be sure to check them out!

Colder temperatures mean it’s time for cozy sweaters like the fabulous one in this week’s photograph.

One Response to “Throwback Thursday: Sweater Weather Edition”

KU no longer has a Women’s Rifle Club? Too bad. It’s far more useful than Women’s Studies and other useless “academic” pursuits offered by the university.
