Throwback Thursday: Homecoming 1925

Posted on May 1, 2014 in Campus News and News

KU’s 102nd Homecoming celebration will take place Sept. 21-27 of this year, and we thought it would be fun to share photos and stories from past Homecomings to help get alumni, students and fans excited. So, we’re participating in the internet theme Throwback Thursday, a popular trend on social media sites like Twitter and Instagram where users post old pictures of themselves.

Here’s a fun picture from University Archives at the Spencer Research Library: the alumni band from 1925 in a semi-circle on the football field. The photo is titled “Band of old timers.”
