This image provided by Wildlife Conservation Society shows an endangered female mountain gorilla carrying an infant on her back in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda, on Aug. 13, 2010. The cameras were hidden with camouflage and didn't have a visible flash and were heat sensitive so when something warm was nearby, the camera snapped a picture. It was the largest animal photographed in the study.
This is a photo of Frank and Dora Hester, and their daughter Nina, taken around 1900. The Hesters built what is our current home at 733 Tennessee Street. The house still looks largely the same, but no more horses and buggies on a dirt Tennessee Street. Submitted by Stacey and Scott White
Frying peppers are the general term for several different thin-walled, small peppers, many of which would look just like an Anaheim or a pale poblano or monster jalapeño if put in a lineup. Frying peppers, whether green, red or somewhere in between are actually very mild. When sautéed or fried, they are as sweet as anything shaped like the more familiar bell.

Dear Lawrence,..Phog Allen stands outside Allen Fieldhouse just after it was completed in 1955. I wonder if Coach Allen had any idea that "his" arena would become one of the best ever. I've been lucky enough to see a lot of great players and coaches win big games in The Phog. We're lucky to be Jayhawks. Thanks Phog. Photo by Doug Stremel
This is a picture on the Haskell campus taken from the yearbook. I believe it was around 1911. The photo is shot looking west at the bandstand/gazebo. According to a Haskell graduate, the gazebo was in front of a hospital that used to be on campus. The library now sits to the west of it. Submitted by Rhonda LeValdo
The photo is of Senator Bob Dole in 1942 while on the KU track team. The photographer is unknown but the photo is housed in the Robert J. Dole Archive, Dole Institute of Politics..Bob Dole, 1976. "When I was 18, 19, 20, my primary interest was how fast I could run and how well I could do out on the basketball floor....whether I could catch a football. That seemed to be the greatest goal in life."--Bob Dole. In December 1942, after Pearl Harbor, Dole enlisted in the army. The rest is history. Photo submitted by Alison Carter
Dear Lawrence,..The 2007 photo of the meadowlark flying from the barbed wire was taken at the former Farmland Industries property. It was before the property was purchased by the city of Lawrence. The site is now mostly cleared, and Lawrence city commission is expected to move forward with plans to convert the property to a business park. ..The original photo was actually a mistake. I was waiting for the meadowlark to turn around and look at me � but he decided to fly away. I was slow on the trigger, and half of his body ended up out of frame. Happy accident. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. Let's hope the business park project finds some of that luck, too. Photo by Doug Stremel

During the 1950's my father, JD King was manager of the Commonwealth Theaters in Lawrence (drive-in theater, Granada, Varsity, and Patee). Between Ernst Hardware and the Antique Mall on the 800 hundred block of Mass St. there is empty space where the Patee was. It was built by a lady that was born in Lawrence but went to the east coast where she and her husband started picture theaters . She came back to take care of her step father and built the Patee. My father told me about the Patee and showed my family a picture of it. He said it was gone in 1955. I thought he said by fire but I can not find any evidence to that fact. My daughter Lauren Vanek is holding a picture of the Patee that was showing the new movie, "King Kong" in the 1930s. Stan Schwen (manager of the Patee) and his wife Maisie are standing in front of the theater..
Dear Lawrence: A photo of my buddies from the 7th floor of Oliver Hall in the fall of 1982. I only remember several names, but the stories are still fresh in my mind. Like keggers in the lobby, 'gobbles' thrown from the upstairs bathrooms, and playing hooky all day at Lone Star Lake. Our hair was longer, our shorts were shorter, and life was simpler. Wow, 30 years files by too fast. Photo by Doug Stremel
Dear Lawrence,..One of my favorite photos of my boys, Alec, Zak, and Connor helping paint the fence at 1646 Massachusetts Street. My wife Mickey took the photo. We have a lot of special memories in that big, old, Victorian Queen Anne home. Dr. Terry Riordan and his family owned and renovated the house before we lived there. After us, Matt and Judy Veatch did many more beautiful renovations, and now the home is on the National Register of Historic Places. Photo by Doug Stremel
