On the Hill
A Photographic History of the University of Kansas
Compiled by Virginia Adams, Katie Armitage, Donna Butler, Carol Shankel, and Barbara Watkins
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 is the yearbook of all yearbooks for University of Kansas graduates and friends. Photographs of just about every event that ever took place on Mount Oread are spread throughout this handsome keepsake for Jayhawks.”
