Course detail: OSH254 - FaceNames: Portraits of Men and Women Who Helped Create KU

A walk down Jayhawk Boulevard is a walk through the history of the University of Kansas. Its buildings are named for chancellors and faculty leaders from its opening day through decades of challenges and changes. In this class we will look at Francis H. Snow, L.L. Dyche, James Green, Erasmus Haworth, Carrie Watson and Frank Strong, among others, and give a special salute to Elizabeth Watkins, who was so generous to KU and its students. Archival photographs will enrich this look at more than 150 years of fascinating people - many of them alumni- and the place they built.
