Building Community through Shared History - A KU Memorial Union Program

Depressing Times

After leading the University through difficult times during the depression, Chancellor Lindley stepped down from the University's top position and embarked on a much-needed vacation to the Far East. He never made it home alive. He died on August 21, 1940 and was buried at sea.
