Throwback Thursday: Chopping Wood

Happy #ThrowbackThursday from Nebraska Memories!

This week, we have a 5 1/2″ x 3″ black and white photograph of a group preparing for a picnic at Kearney Lake. The man swinging the axe is Professor John A. Stryker.

This image is published and owned by Calvin T. Ryan Library at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. Working together with the Nebraska Library Commission as part of its effort to maximize access to its collection, the Calvin T. Ryan Library has digitized and made available on the Web selected photos of the early history of the institution.

If you like history, check out the Nebraska Memories archive!

Nebraska Memories is a cooperative project to digitize Nebraska-related historical and cultural heritage materials and make them available to researchers of all ages via the Internet. The Nebraska Memories archive is brought to you by the Nebraska Library Commission.
