Building Community through Shared History - A KU Memorial Union Program

Share Your Story

Sometimes, members of the KU community have personal stories that better inform the overall history of the university. 

In these instances, KU History likes to capture these individuals' stories (through oral histories or written testimonials) as part of our archives for future research, writing and exhibits.

If you have a story that you think may help better tell the history of KU, please contact Tim Gaddie at 785-864-4651 or
