We've Expanded Our Yearbook Holdings

School yearbooks can be a great source of pictures and information about Cambridge and its people.  They offer pictures of students and teachers, sports and other activities, and may have other historical notes.  For example, some of the Cambridge Echoes yearbooks offer detailed histories of the graduating class including who joined or left the class in which grade.  They generally include not only the graduating class pictures; but, also those of many of the following grades.

We have a collection of both Cambridge Echoes yearbooks and the subsequent Ballard Bombers yearbooks for your research.  While we had some of each, we were recently able to obtain a number of Ballard Bombers yearbooks to greatly expand the years we cover!

Our current holdings are:
  • Cambridge Echoes 1952 through 1956
  • Ballard Bombers 1962 through 1964
  • Ballard Bombers 1967 through 1971
  • Ballard Bombers 1975
  • Ballard Bombers1978 through 1979
  • Ballard Bombers 1981 through 1987
  • Ballard Bombers 1990
  • Ballard Bombers 1992
  • Ballard Bombers 1995
  • Ballard Bombers 1998
  • Ballard Bombers 2001 through 2003
  • Ballard Bombers 2005 through 2011

This still leaves us with a number of years not represented in our files.  We know the Cambridge Echoes was published in 1951; but, we do not know when it started.  Does anyone know how early it was published?  Do you have yearbooks you would like to donate or would allow us to copy?  Thank you for your help!
