Artifact Donation

KU History does collect items to display in exhibits that help people experience the university's history.

We can also help you find the best place to donate your item, if the item doesn't quite fit with our mission or ability to properly preserve or display it.

If you have questions or would like to donate, please contact Tim Gaddie at 785-864-4651 or kuhistory@ku.edu.
