Yearbooks at Webster University

Webster published a yearbook from 1924 through 1969 (except for 1934 when none was published). For most of these years the publication was called the Lauretanum and included the traditional types of features: photographs and information on social activities, athletics, personnel and students, etc.

In 1967, the students issued a very different publication, the Webster College Non-Yearbook, which coincided with the institution's groundbreaking transfer of ownership to a lay board. Besides reprinting article excerpts from the student newspaper, this volume included photographs, cartoons, graphic art, and quotations. The book was accompanied by sound recordings of various students, faculty and staff.
