(UPKS)
2502 Westbrooke Circle Lawrence, KS 66045

The University Press of Kansas, which publishes scholarly books for the state regents institutions, other universities, and scholars, dedicated this building in the West District Oct. 11, 1991.

Founded in 1946 specifically for KU but expanded in 1967 to other regents' schools, the press had been housed in Stauffer-Flint and Carruth-O’Leary halls.

This red-brick and stone building, designed by Ross & Gadgil of Overland Park, has 6,350 square feet and houses a staff of about 15. The press, which publishes about 50 books a year, specializes in American history, presidential and military history, social and political philosophy, and environmental studies.
