University of Kansas Gifted 700 Signed Celebrity Portraits

Associated Press - November 24, 2016 4:30 pm

Students at the University of Kansas will face at least a 3 percent increase to live on campus next year.

A University of Kansas professor is giving more than 700 autographed portraits of celebrities to one of the school’s libraries.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports associate film and media studies professor John Tibbetts will give the portraits to the Kenneth Spencer Research Library.

Tibbetts interviewed celebrities through his work as a professor and radio and television broadcaster.

Celebrity portraits include depictions of “Fahrenheit 451” author Ray Bradbury, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, actor Julie Andrews and celebrity Whoopi Goldberg.

Tibbetts is giving the portraits in a series of multi-year donations. The first installment will include writers, musicians, broadcasters and sports figures.
