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.

[Snip]

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.
