Colgate University’s Salmagundi yearbook is accessible online

This spring Colgate University’s Salmagundi yearbook is accessible online for the first time. The entire run of yearbooks, beginning in 1884, has been digitized into high quality, full-color scans and is available through the Libraries’ Digital Collections.  Until 1934, the focus of the yearbooks was on the junior class, because they were responsible for putting it together. The senior class was still pictured, but it was the juniors who had the spotlight with bigger pictures and more personal details. During World War II there was no production of Salmagundi, which is why there are no yearbooks for 1944, 1945, and 1946. Also, don’t forget that until 1890 the school was called Madison University
