Throwback Thursday: Summer School

It’s time for another #ThrowbackThursday from Nebraska Memories!

Pictured in this week’s #Throwback are some students attending Summer School at the Nebraska State School at Kearney in the early 1900s. The school was founded in 1905. In 1921, it became Nebraska State Teachers college and then renamed to Kearney State College in 1963. The institution joined the Nebraska University system in 1991.

This black and white photograph is published and owned by the Calvin T. Ryan Library at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. Items in this collection feature faculty, students, buildings, and activities from the first years of the school’s existence.

If you or someone you know likes history, especially Nebraska History, check out the Nebraska Memories archive! It’s a cooperative project to digitize Nebraska-related historical and cultural materials and make them available to researchers of all ages.

The Nebraska Memories archive is brought to you by the Nebraska Library Commission. If your institution is interested in participating in Nebraska Memories, see for more information.
