Q: What distinction was bestowed upon KU’s Bailey Hall on Oct. 22, 2001?

A: On October 22, 2001, the 101-year-old Bailey Hall was named to the National Register of Historic Places. The building that was for many years fondly referred to as “Bailey’s Barn” opened in 1900 as the new home of the Chemistry Department. It was named for E.H.S. Bailey, a distinguished and beloved member of the chemistry department from 1883 to 1933 who was also the author of the original iteration of the Rock Chalk cheer.
