Overview

This rich collection of photographs spans 125 years, two world wars, the Great Depression, the turbulent 60s, and everything in between. More than 400 images depict the growth and changes that took the University of Kansas from a small collection of buildings on a treeless hill to the major educational center it is today.

This revised, updated edition includes 44 new photographs and a new chapter to bring the University's history into the 1990s. It captures both everyday and extraordinary events—from orchestra concerts and anatomy labs to war protests and basketball championships—and provides an insightful and nostalgic journey for all whose lives were touched by the University of Kansas.

Editorial Reviews

Kansas City Star
This is the yearbook of all yearbooks for University of Kansas graduates and friends.
Lawrence Journal-World
The quotations—drawn from newspapers, magazines, letters, and the like—lift the photos from the status of quaint reminiscences to a level of 'living history'.
Wichita Eagle
The vintage photos alone are worth the price of the book.

Excellent Book with pictures that will make any Jayhawk stare with amazement. The best book that I've ever read about the University and tells the story through pictures and also letters and writing by people from that time. A Must have for those who love the campus and buildings! Rock Chalk Jayhawks, KU!!!
