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.

    Great for Alumi, Students and Fans alike of KU

    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!!!
