This black and white photograph shows a football game between the University of Kansas and Missouri at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence, Kansas. The stadium, named in memory of the students who fought and died during World War I, is located at the north base of Mt. Oread on the campus of the University of Kansas. When the facility opened on October 29, 1921, seating consisted of only an east and west section of bleachers. In 1925, a section of seats were expanded southward. Two years later in 1927, a north section of bleachers were added to create a horseshoe shape to the stadium.
