We are excited to announce that the Mississippi College and Hillman College yearbooks have been digitized. You can access them at: https://archive.org/details/mississippicollege.
In May of 1906, at a meeting of Mississippi College’s student body, it was decided that there should be an annual published for the 1906-07 school year. This annual was titled L’Allegro.
It cost $4.00 to rent a typewriter for one month
Editorial in the first L'Allegro
For the 1924-25 school year the students decided it was time for a new name for their annual. The title was changed to the name it still has today, Tribesman.
Hillman College opened as Central Female institute in 1853 and was purchased and absorbed into Mississippi College in 1942. Hillman was an all female college and considered the sister school to MC. Their first annual, The Pioneer, was published in 1913. Some years they had their own annual and others their students were included in the MC annual.
All our annuals are now online. They are word searchable and downloadable.
