For 80 years the University of Minnesota junior class published an annual yearbook simply titled, the Gopher.
In 1888, University of Minnesota students published the first volume of the Gopher yearbook. The tradition of an annual yearbook continued through 1967. Each Gopher yearbook has a unique style and flourish of its own. View a few of the interesting pages from the volumes below, and then find more on your own!
The Gopher yearbooks are available for browsing at the University Archives or online!
