The Houstonian Yearbook

Hey all, I was given 4 copies of The Houstonian from a friend who does estate sales. They are from ‘60-‘64.

I wanted to know if someone wanted them or would like me to find and post some pictures from them. Just let me know.

I’ll take them if they’re still available.

FYI - all of the yearbooks from 1934-2010ish are online and digitized by the MD Anderson librarians.✓&sort=sort_date_ssi+asc&per_page=100&locale=en

Yes, they’re available!

You don’t get the beautifully embossed covers online!


Neat, thanks for the link.

Now a question for all. Did you notice how small the class sections are for student
photos ? How do we stack up against other universities in respect to getting
the student yearbook photos taken ?

Is this an indication of why we have such a rather small alumni support base
in terms of donations to the school and support of athletics ? If you don’t have enough
interest to participate in getting your picture taken in the 4-6 years you are a student does
not speak well of the culture.

I have our 95-97 yearbooks that I bought while I was in law school.

I never had my photo taken for any of them though.

As an aside, I have kids in school now and am amazed that yearbooks are all in color. I was on the yearbook staff in high school, it was like the dark ages back then.

What about at your undergrad school ?
Did you just skip those as well ?

It seems we have a low participation rate, but I got no reference points for comparison.

I only had a photo done for my Sr. year.

As a consequence, that is the only undergrad yearbook I bought.

The only grad school I have a yearbook, and have a photo from, was US Army Command and General Staff College in 2009.

I didn’t know colleges did year books.
