40 years ago: Parents, editors, and others visit KU campus

September 27, 2012


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Sept. 27, 1972:

  • The upcoming weekend was expected to be a crowded one on the Kansas University campus. In addition to the home football game, hundreds of guests would be on Mount Oread for Parents' Day, Editors' Day, and the Greater University Fund Advisory Board meeting. A pre-game lunch was planned for the parents, as well as a reception afterward, and academic offices and departmental open houses were to be available to parental visitors during the morning hours. Sessions for editors visiting from daily and weekly newspapers throughout Kansas were planned as part of Editors' Day, which dated back to the KU editors' roundtable seminars of the 1920s.
  • It was announced today that former Kansas University chancellor Laurence Chalmers had been appointed director of the Chicago Art Institute, effective Oct. 1. Chalmers had submitted his resignation as chancellor to the Kansas Board of Regents on Aug. 19, citing "personal stress" resulting from his Aug. 11 divorce.
