Posted on Feb 28, 2019 in Campus News and News

On the 70th anniversary of the University’s student-run variety show for a cause, the KU Alumni Association presents the past and present of Rock Chalk Revue.

Variety shows on KU’s campus trace back to “College Daze,” a revue sponsored by the student union introduced after World War II.

In 1949, Roy Wonder, b’50, wanted a campus variety show with higher student participation.
