Yearbook: Daniel Baker College

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Daniel Baker College (TX) has a selection of their yearbooks available online. The Daniel Baker College Trail and Hill Billie yearbooks have been made available through the efforts of the Portal to Texas History.

There is a succinct breakdown of some of the yearbooks' content here.

The first yearbook was published in 1913, and was called "The Trail." Yearbooks were published by the student body on a somewhat erratic annual basis, 1913-1917, 1920-22, 1924-26. In 1929, a paperbound volume was issued with the title "The Hill Billie." It was to be a substitute for the Trail, which had ceased publication for a period of five years in order that more funding might "go toward the erection of a gymnasium for the college"

I can see how publication of the yearbook would be sacrificed for this noble cause. When the yearbook returned its authors were clearly used to the shorter format:

Regardless, I always appreciate a nice historical yearbook and so it makes the list. The Daniel Baker College yearbooks; newest addition to the yearbook collection.
