Jayhawker Life, April 1936, Part II

Yesterday, we looked at the life of a University of Kansas Jayhawk in the spring of 1936. Today, we start with scenes from their social life.

Students bought tickets for Carnival Town.

It was an indoor affair.

Lucky Millinder provided the music.

There were sideshow acts as well.

The students loved costume parties.

And sports were taken seriously.

The ladies below were the junior queens of the annual prom. As you can see, this was a “bare forehead” time in hairstyling.

I also wanted to share some of the ads in the back of the magazine, for the artwork as well as the three-digit phone numbers.

And how about that cute little image at the bottom right? Keep in step! Everyone knows ice cream is healthy!

  1. What a rich post; so much to see. I like the artwork. So simple and elegant; and the pictures are so much fun to look at. As for the big foreheads I wonder if the photographer need to use a light meter or powder to lessen glare.
