Who Was Lewis Lindsay Dyche, Namesake of KU's Natural History Museum?

Dyche Hall, Natural History Museum, University of Kansas

Almost all university buildings are named after noteworthy people -- former school presidents, prominent scholars, wealthy donors or even famous alumni. The Natural History Museum at the University of Kansas is no exception. It's named after a man from Osage County, who spent most of his childhood... avoiding school. Commentator John Richard Schrock tells us more.  

Commentator John Richard Schrock is professor emeritus of biology at Emporia State University. He's also been a visiting teacher and lecturer in China since the mid-1970s. He lives in Emporia.
