Digitized UNC Yearbooks bring University's history to the web"A slice of University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill history is now online with digitized student yearbooks from 1890 through 1966 and early issues of the Carolina Alumni Review. The Hellenian and Yackety Yack yearbooks provide a rich resource for learning about student life in the past, said Nick Graham, program coordinator of the North Carolina Digital Heritage Center based at UNC's Wilson Special Collections Library.

Graham said that the historic yearbooks provide an interesting window on student life over the years, including the ways that attitudes and fashions evolved"
