Wake County is home to many educational institutions and I’m slowly building up the Education page with their information. Tonight, I’ve added links to the growing collection of yearbooks that the University of North Carolina is adding to the Internet Archive website for schools around the state. Particularly of interest for Wake County are:
- North Carolina State University – to date, they have all the yearbooks online from 1903-2009!
- Meredith College - these are just beginning to be added; to date, they have issues spanning 1904-1913 and I am sure more will be added soon.
Not only is Wake County represented, but they also have yearbooks for:
- Appalachaian State University
- Duke University
- Elizabeth City State University (African-American)
- Elon University
- Louisburg College
- UNC-Chapel Hill
- UNC- Greensboro
From the Wake County Education page, I’ve linked to the overall yearbooks page we’ve created for sharing across the NCGenWeb project. You should definitely take the time to explore; you may find your ancestor’s yearbook photo. I found three of my family members in the yearbooks for ESCU and I’m hopeful I’ll find more!
