Yearbook: Greensboro College Echo

Wednesday, September 7, 2011

Greensboro College has their yearbooks online and they make a timely and fortuitous addition to the yearbook collection. Started 1833, Greensboro was one of the first all-women's colleges to open in the United states. Their Sports Information Dept. doesn't have their football media guide up, and I don't have the time right now to browse through all of the yearbooks so I don't have a lot of info on how old their football program is, nor how they have fared in their history - but the collection looks good and is very nearly complete. Their Extra Point online newsletter does a good job of keeping interested parties astride of Greensboro football events.

Including yearbooks from each decade from 1903 until 2005, this digital collection is a very solid collection of yearbooks. The years represented are 1903,1908, 1911, 1916-1999 and 2005. The first yearbook of the collection is 1903 when the text was known as The Tattler - after which the yearbook has been called the Echo.

This collection comes from what is a nice aggregation of small college yearbooks. We've seen school-led yearbook digitization projects and this is another state-led digitization project. I'm particularly excited about this one because it gives me some very nice content for my yearbook posts and include some relevant football schools, so we have a bunch more look forward to
