University Archives Videos

With generous support from KU Alums Scott and Lisa Ritchie, the University Archives has begun a program of digitization of our extensive film and video collections. Historic moving images have been selected that encompass the wide scope of the collections within the Archives. Content ranges from sporting events such as footage from the Kansas Relays of 1930, to university celebrations including KU’s centennial in 1966 and Christmas Vespers from the 1960s, and student activities such as KU Marching Band half-time performances during football games.

Certain images, words, terms, or descriptions may be offensive, culturally insensitive, or considered inappropriate today. These items do not represent the views of the libraries or the university.
