Dear Fellow Jayhawks:

We are seeking your assistance as we search for KU artifacts to exhibit in the new Booth Family Hall of Athletics. At this time we are asking friends, fans and former student-athletes to send us a list of artifacts they would be willing to donate for display in the facility. Please note, we are not asking for any donated items to be sent at this time.

Please contact John Matsko of the Kansas Athletics staff if you have something you feel could enhance the Booth Family Hall of Athletics and would want to see displayed. Some examples would be NCAA championship and conference medals, awards, uniforms and souvenirs. You may contact John via email – JMATSKO@ku.edu – or at 785.864.5583. We will provide our exhibit committee the list of items for its review.

We want the Booth Family Hall of Athletics to be a place Kansas alumni and fans celebrate and learn about the history of KU athletics. With as much information that is being compiled into the exhibits, we know this is a fluid project that will be updated in future years. Not all the donated items will be on display at the opening; they may, however, be used in the future. We appreciate your time and consideration with this special project. Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

Director of Athletics
