Naismith Archives visit the Little Apple

James Naismith Archives event, Manhattan
More than 30 Jayhawks gathered June 18 at the Little Apple Brewing Company in Manhattan to view artifacts from James Naismith’s life in a popular exhibit presented by the KU Libraries.

The glimpse into the life of Dr. Naismith included photographs, handwritten notes and even an example of the athletic sock worn by athletes during Naismith’s KU coaching days.

Fun fact: the reservation for the event was held under James Naismith’s name.

KU Libraries will continue exhibiting the Naismith artifacts throughout the Alumni Association’s ‘Hawk Days of Summer tour, including an upcoming presentation at the East Kansas Wine Festival and at events on the east coast. Check the events calendar for upcoming tour dates and cities.
