Rebecca Schulte, archivist with University Archives, shows off some retired Jayhawk and Baby Jay mascot costumes tucked away in Spencer Research Library. The items are an example of some of the unusual pieces collected by University Archives.
"It's a plaster cast of chancellor Franklin Murphy (who served from 1951-1960). It was done by a member of the art faculty," Schulte says. "I'm not really sure why we have this."
JAYHAWK DESIGNER ARTWORK
In 1912, school cartoonist Daniel Henry Maloy created the enduring Jayhawk image that has come to symbolize the university. KU has a collection of Maloy's original artwork, such as this late-'60s pencil-and-ink sketch of a Jayhawk grooving with guitar- and bongo-playing hippies.
Becky Schulte, looks over one of the several pictures in the collection, this one is from the final four in Kansas, City which KU won.
