Happy birthday, Dr. Schiefelbusch

Posted on Jul 20, 2016 in Alumni News and News

Today is Professor Richard Schiefelbusch’s 98th birthday!

Dr. Schiefelbusch was a POW in World War II; a 1947 master’s graduate of KU; the founder of the KU Bureau of Child Research, which ultimately became part of the Schiefelbusch Institute for Life Span Studies, an internationally acclaimed KU research hub; and one of the best Jayhawks ever.

He graced the cover of Kansas Alumni magazine in November 2009 with the headline “Sunny and 91.”

A group of singers and well-wishers gathered today to sing “Happy Birthday” and surprise him during the Endacott Society coffee in the Bruckmiller Room. Watch the video on our Facebook page– our first attempt at Facebook Live video!
