40 years ago: KS Geological Survey preps for move to new building

January 12, 2013


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Jan. 12, 1973:

  • Staff at the Kansas Geological Survey were packing up in anticipation of their move to their new home in the Raymond C. Moore building on the west campus of Kansas University. Lindley Hall, current location of the survey, was a scene of confusion with "boxes everywhere," according to Rod Hardy, information and education officer of the survey. A ribbon-cutting ceremony for $1,360,000 Moore Hall was scheduled for Feb. 2. The new building was at 19th and Iowa, adjacent to the U.S. Geological Survey Building, with a covered walkway connecting the two structures.
  • KU Chancellor Raymond Nichols said this week that he had approved a recommendation from KU housing officials that would increase rates for single dormitory rooms by $50 and would add a $15 hike to double room rates at Corbin and Gertrude Sellards Pearson halls.
