Blue & Gold Yearbooks

 

The Blue and Gold Yearbooks collection gathers together the yearbooks of the Women’s College of Delaware. Founded in 1914, the Women’s College and its coordinate men’s institution, Delaware College, together became the University of Delaware in 1921. With the establishment of co-education at the University in 1945, the Women’s College ceased to exist.

According to Winifred Robinson, the founding Dean of the Women’s College, the first yearbooks were published annually by the Senior class and later biennially by the Junior and Senior classes. The first issue appeared in 1918 under the title The Chronicle. Publication continued until 1944. With the publication of the 1946 number, The Blue Hen became the yearbook for all students of the University.

Within the collection, yearbooks are organized by the year of the graduating class. Student address information has been redacted from the yearbooks for 1942 and 1945. Delaware College and the University of Delaware yearbooks can be found in the Blue Hen Yearbooks collection.
