Watkins & Miller Halls, a book newly published by the Historic Mount Oread Friends, details the story of Elizabeth Miller Watkins and her development of the two scholarship halls at the University of Kansas. The book was compiled by Kitchen 8 President Norma (Decker) Hoagland and launched during our 2016 Kitchen 8 Annual Meeting in April.  To purchase your copy of the publication click on the button below to order from the University Press website.
