Throwback Thursday: Thanksgiving 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 1,700 images from KU’s University Archives and made them available online; be sure to check them out!

We would like to wish our friends, supporters, researchers, and visitors a very happy Thanksgiving! Please remember that Spencer Research Library will be closed today through Sunday, November 30, for the holiday.
