Training School & College High Collection

Girls Basketball Team 1927

Founded as a teachers college in 1906, WKU soon found the need to have a training school located on campus. The first was located in the old Southern Normal Training School building. Upon moving to the Hill, the training school was moved to the original Potter Hall. Lastly, in 1925 the training school and high school moved into its own building, currently known as the Science and Technology Building.

University Archives holds about 10 cubic feet of records from the training school and high school. These include class rolls, catalogs, scrapbooks, photographs, basketball scorebooks, event programs, curriculum guides and cookbooks.

These materials are available for researchers in the Harrison-Baird Reading Room, Monday to Saturday 9 to 4.  Check out KenCat  to see digitized photographs.  See also the new online exhibit in commemoration of the rededication of the Science & Technology Building.
