Tech Yearbooks Online

Travel back in time 100 years to the very beginnings of Arkansas Tech University through the pages of the yearbook, Agricola—newly digitized and now available through the Library’s website:

The Agricola was published from 1912-2006, as Arkansas Tech University’s yearbook.   Each yearbook features images and scenes of daily life, clubs and organizations, faculty members, athletics, and the buildings of Arkansas Tech when it was  known as the Second District Agricultural School (1909-1924).  Several include poetry, short stories, schedules of school events, and advertising from local businesses in the surrounding communities.

The online PDFs for the years 1912-1915, 1918, 1922-1924 can be full-text searched as individual PDFs, and a number of the original covers are also available online.

The physical copies of the yearbooks are currently housed at the Library, and most from 1912-2006 are still available for browsing and check-out.  Search our  online catalog for more details.  While not all of the yearbooks have been digitized, we have plans to add more to this collection as the year goes on.

In the meantime, travel to these first few years of Arkansas Tech history as told through the photographs, writings, jokes, and hairstyles of the students who were living it.  No Tardis necessary.
