Old Home Town - 100 years ago

June 10, 2007


From the Lawrence Daily World for June 10, 1907: "In his speech before the nearly 1,000 guests at the annual university dinner, chancellor Frank Strong outlined publicly for the first time university plans for proposals to the next Kansas Legislature. He cited four main items: Salary increases for all full professors; the levying of a mill tax for furnishing a permanent income for the university; an appropriation for a fine arts building; an appropriation for a woman's building to provide dormitories. This is the first time these items have been formally presented although they have been informally discussed for some time."
