Yearbooks are a fun way to find out about your ancestor\’s academic life. If your ancestor attended or worked at the University of Saskatchewan between 1912 and 1969, then you\’re in luck. The University has digitized their yearbooks for these years on their website.
- From 1913 to 1920, the April edition of the University\’s newsletter The Sheaf was the graduation edition and served as a yearbook.
- 1921 a stand alone yearbook was published, called The Spectrum.
- 1922/1923 – published as The Keystone
- 1924-1926 – published as US
- 1927 – 1969 – published as The Greystone
- Due to privacy restrictions, later years won\’t have individual student photos and bios of the graduating class. Once a year book has passed the 92 year benchmark, they will also become available online. I looked and as of today, student bios and pictures are available up to 1927. However, there are still group photos from extra curriculars. You might still find your ancestor among those.
- There is no zoom function. This can make the site a little clunky to use, but it\’s not terrible.
- There is no ability to print. However, just right click on the image and save the page as a picture. Then you can use your computer\’s capabilities to crop and manipulate how you like.
