This category contains links to full-color thumbnail images of selected student literary society posters, yearbooks [Schoolma’am] from 1910 to 1912, as well as selected student handbooks, 1912 to 1915.  The posters, most of which were oversized, were scanned in segments, and pieced as 400 ppi .tiff files for long term storage.  Next, .jpg derivatives were then made at 72 ppi, with the ability to view them at 800 pixels and 1600 pixels on the long side, respectively, for closer examination.  The student handbooks and Schoolma’ams were scanned and saved as 400 ppi .tiff files, from which .jpg derivatives were made at 72 ppi, with 1600 pixels on the long side of the image, and from which combined .pdf documents were created.
