Throwback Thursday: Team-Building 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 23,200 images from KU’s University Archives and made them available online; be sure to check them out!

Good luck to the KU baseball team as it kicks off the 2016 season on Sunday. Rock Chalk!
