K-State Sesquicentennial Keepsakes

While the topics are selected at random, all are chosen with the hopes that readers will learn more about K-State’s impressive history and traditions and, along the way, find the content interesting and entertaining! Some K-State Keepsakes are chosen for their timeliness, such as our profile of the founding of K-State on Founders' Day or our celebration of the Kansas Sesquicentennial on its 150th birthday.

All of the information, including the photographs (with a few exceptions), was taken from sources in the Richard L. D. and Marjorie J. Morse Department of Special Collections.
