IN 1898
May 26, 1998
On May 26, 1898, another explanation of the origin of the term “Jayhawker” was offered. There are several other explanations but the headline in the Lawrence World read: “The `Gay Yorker”’ and the story began: “It is probable but few persons in Lawrence are aware of the origination of the term `Jayhawker,’ that is now applied to all Kansans. According to C. W. Smith (long-time Lawrencian) it came about in this manner: Col. Charles Ranford Jennison, one of the bravest men in Kansas before and during the Civil War, was a dressy fellow and in some way received the name of `Gay Yorker’ in reference to his having come from New York. This nickname became very common and generally known because its bearer was at the head of the military forces in the state and finally became corrupted into `Jayhawker.’ The name stuck to Kansas and her people, and now every Kansas born youth is called a Jayhawker.” — Courtesy Watkins Community Museum
