Old Home Town - 100 years ago

May 19, 2008


From the Lawrence Daily World of May 19, 1908: "A May Fete, to be held on The Hill this weekend, will be a decided innovation to arouse student interest and perhaps to become an annual event. This is patterned after May Day festivities on campuses in the east and it has the promise to become a major annual highlight at KU. : The country and village schools in our county are to graduate 114 from the eighth-grade level. Many have done work good enough to skip the examination required for graduation and the others reportedly should have no trouble since they have received good schooling. : Kanwaka Township is little in land but is growing rapidly. A baby was born last year for every two sections of land and the population is expected to keep growing."
