Building
Adams Alumni Center
1266 Oread Ave.
Lawrence, KS 66045

The redbrick classical-style building, designed by Kiene & Bradley Architectural Partnership of Topeka, was dedicated May 14, 1983, in the centennial year of the Alumni Association. The association had been housed in Fraser and Strong halls, Sudler House and the Kansas Union before the new center was built. An alumni fund drive raised $4.2 million for construction, and the KU Endowment Association donated a site northeast of the Kansas Union.

Building
Allen Fieldhouse
1651 Naismith Drive
Lawrence, KS 66045

The fieldhouse, which opened March 1, 1955, is named for Forrest C. "Phog" Allen, longtime basketball coach who played for and was trained by James Naismith, the game's founder, a longtime KU professor of physical culture and its first basketball coach. The fieldhouse and its basketball court, now named for Naismith, superseded the facilities at the original Robinson Gymnasium, built in 1907 and razed in the late 1960s, and Hoch Auditorium, where games were played from 1927 to 1955. Like those facilities, the fieldhouse also has been the site of concerts and university functions.

Fountain
Alumni Place Fountain
East of Miller and Watkins scholarship halls
Lawrence, KS

At the suggestion in 1953 of Chancellor Franklin D. Murphy, a large cast-stone fountain was purchased with $1,300 in private funds from the Erkins Studio in New York. It was placed in a circular terrace surrounded by three benches at the south end of Alumni Place; Facilities Planning landscaped the site, near the retaining wall behind Miller and Watkins scholarship halls. By 1981, deterioration had so damaged the fountain that an exact replica was made by Erkins, and it was reinstalled.

Building
Ambler Student Recreation Fitness Center
1740 Watkins Center Dr

The $17-million facility south of Watkins Memorial Health Center, funded by student fees, was dedicated Sept. 25, 2003. In December 2007, it was named in honor of David A. Ambler, the longtime vice chancellor for student affairs who was a strong advocate for a new recreation fitness center.

Building
Bailey Hall
1440 Jayhawk Blvd
Lawrence, KS 66045

Bailey Hall, completed in 1900, was designed by John G. Haskell and built in response to surging enrollments in chemistry and pharmacy that made the 1883 Chemistry Hall (“the Shack”), also designed by Haskell, too small and outdated.

Building
Battenfeld Scholarship Hall
1425 Alumni Pl
Lawrence, KS 66044

This hall housing 48 students was the first men’s residence hall built at the university. It was the gift of Mr. and Mrs. J.R.

Designed by Morton Payne and Russell Field of Kansas City, the three-story Georgian brick building opened in September 1940.
