Do the University of Minnesota Libraries have old University of Minnesota Yearbooks?


In 1888, University of Minnesota students published the first volume of the Gopher yearbook. The annual tradition of a student-run yearbook continued until 1967. The Gophers have been digitized and are available online in the UMedia Archive to browse and search. Individual pages can be downloaded. A full run of the print volumes is available in the University Archives reference collection. Please contact University Archives if you would like to schedule a research visit.

Volumes of the Gopher are also available in the Wilson Library Annex. You can use Get It to request the year(s) you would like, or if you are not a current University of Minnesota student, staff or faculty, call Wilson Library at (612) 624-3321 to order the year(s) you would like.
