Scope and content

Autobiographical information which class members recorded on forms distributed by the Alumni Office and printed in booklet form for reunion classes. Arranged by class year (not by reunion year). Class of 1893- . Except for the 1913 reunion of the Class of 1893 (Souvenir: Reunion of '93 Grinnell) and the 1966 reunion of the Class of 1916 (Golden Anniversary Record of the Class of 1916), these booklets have been compiled since about the reunion of 1988. [These photographs were part of a display, probably for the 50th reunion of the class of 1928 in 1978. Because of their condition several of the posterboards were disassembled, labels copied on the verso of the photos, and shelved in folders with other papers in the Archives record group (RG-Alum/Ser.3.1:1928). Three posterboards are intact and filed in the oversize #1 file drawer (RG-Alumn/Ser.3.1.1928)]
