Cool! U. of North Carolina Digitizes Every Student Yearbook from 1890 through 1966

Some very cool and very useful are now online from the University of North Carolina

From the Announcement:

A slice of UNC history is now online with digitized student yearbooks from 1890 through 1966 and early issues of the Carolina Alumni Review.

[The digitized files are being housed and served by The Internet Archive].

The Hellenian and Yackety Yack yearbooks provide a rich resource for learning about student life in the past, said Nick Graham, program coordinator of the North Carolina Digital Heritage Center based at UNC’s Wilson Special Collections Library.

The North Carolina Collection has additionally digitized the first twelve volumes of the Carolina Alumni Review, covering the years 1912-1924.

The yearbooks and alumni magazines were digitized using one of the three high-speed “Scribe” scanners [includes pictures] in the Carolina Digital Library and Archives in Wilson Library. Each Scribe is capable of digitizing approximately 3,000 pages of text per day.

A bit more about the project in this announcement from UNC.
