40 years ago: Sen. Dole drops in at Kansas Union

October 18, 2011


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Oct. 18, 1971:

With an "absolute minimum of fanfare," Kansas Sen. Robert Dole had dropped by the student union at Kansas University recently. The Republic National Chairman, who had attended KU from 1941-43, had settled down in the main lounge, where a group of about 50 students asked him questions on various topics. In speaking with the students, Dole mentioned President Richard Nixon as a great asset to the Republican party, citing "his efforts on the war, his trips to China and Russia, the SALT talks, and the Berlin agreement." Dole also visited the Kappa Sigma fraternity house after leaving the student union.
