KSU Mason Finds 88-Year-Old Note at Stadium

KSAL StaffFebruary 4, 2016

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) – A mason working at Kansas State University has found an 88-year-old handwritten note that gives a glimpse into the lives of laborers in 1928.

The mason found the note in a tobacco can he encountered in December while restoring and replacing stones at Kansas State University’s East Memorial Stadium in Manhattan.

A Facebook post from the Kansas State Historical Preservation Office says the five authors dated the note Feb. 2, 1928, and wrote that they hope the letter is found someday in the future, perhaps after they’ve died.

University archivist Cliff Hight says the document will be sent to a conservator for cleaning and protective covering. Hight says there aren’t plans to display the document currently.
