THIS MONTH IN KU HISTORY

(Historical facts have been compiled from the KU Archives and Special Collections of the Rohrbach Library; the archives of the Keystone; Kutztown Patriot, Allentown Leader and Reading Eagle; and Beacon on the Hill by Dr. Lee Graver.)

August 27, 1942:  As the U.S. fights in WWII, chief airplane observer Warren Weidner makes a plea to students and area residents to volunteer at least three hours a week as airplane spotters in Kutztown.  It is also announced that air raid drills will no longer be contained to just evenings.  Daytime drills will be held in the coming months.

150TH TIME CAPSULE BURIAL, THURS., SEPT. 15, 11 A.M., ALUMNI PLAZA
As part of the Sesquicentennial we are going to bury a 50-year time capsule, a message to 2066 about our institution in 2016, enhancing the 200th anniversary of KU. Historians suggest that items which describe the daily lives of the people who created them, such as personal notes, pictures, and documents, would greatly increase the value of the time capsule to future viewers. Please submit your objects with stories to Tammy Wert, Schock Education House, before August 31, 2016.
                Bill Bateman, Professor Emeritus and Sesquicentennial History Committee
