While KU History offers a wide range of stories and information, it is by no means a comprehensive history of the University of Kansas.

If you cannot find the answers to your historical questions on our site, please explore our Other History Resources page for other KU and outside web sites that may have the information you seek.

Please contact Tim Gaddie at 785-864-4651 or for additional help.
