Do you remember what your classmates looked like in your Lees-McRae College Ontaroga? You can see them all online now at www.digitalnc.org.
“This summer, thanks to a donation from alumnus Dr. H.G. Jones, all of the Lees-McRae College yearbooks were taken to the Wilson Archive at UNC-Chapel Hill and digitized as part of a state-wide digitization program for college and university papers and items,” said Russell Taylor, director of libraries.
According the DigitalNC.org the North Carolina yearbooks exhibit provides a window into college life in North Carolina from the 1890s to the present. From sports teams to sororities, fashions to hairstyles, these volumes document the changing attitudes and culture of college students year by year.
The website states, “The North Carolina Digital Heritage Center is working with colleges and universities around the state to digitize student yearbooks and make them available online. Both public and private schools are participating in this project.”
Yearbooks from 1930 to 2006 can be viewed at the following link: http://digitalnc.org/institutions/lees-mcrae-college.
