The University Libraries’ Center for Digital Initiatives has digitized all 112 volumes of the Ariel, the UVM yearbook that was published by students from 1886-1997. The yearbooks document college life and the evolution of the university. They include photographs of students and faculty, buildings and facilities, and activities and events. (See a selection of photos from the 1952 yearbook below.)
The first volume of the Ariel was published by the sophomore class in 1886, but it soon became a junior class project. Beginning in 1956, the senior class assumed responsibility for the annual yearbook. The faculty and students of the Medical College were included until 1936. Ariel ceased publication in 1997. The yearbook was superseded by a senior memory book, Folklore, in 2001.
