Ah, the end of the school year approaches, with graduations galore, so we’d like to highlight some of our newest Free Databases that are Indiana school related!

We start with Fort Wayne Central High School with a large collection of publications, including all yearbooks from 1911 to 1971, various items on historical aspects of the school, such as alumni quotes, sports photographs, and information on sports legend Johnny Bright. There is also the 1934 commencement program, and reunion booklets and photos for that class from 1959 to 1989. One other addition to our Free Databases is the 1920 Commencement program for Fort Wayne High School, Central’s predecessor in name.

We have a new splash page for North Side High School that includes all of the yearbooks from 1929 to 1977, several scrapbooks, reunion booklets for the classes of 1956 and 1970, videos for the 1969 and 1971 basketball seasons and photos of the entire 1938 and 1956 North Side High School graduating classes. Click on any section and see an enlarged view! And, finally, we have the 1966 South Side High School Totem Yearbook.

We’ve also added commence programs for 1930 Allen County Common Schools, 1962 Bishop Luers High School and Fort Wayne’s Central Catholic in 1941 and the New Haven High School Class of 1938 Reunion Booklet of 1998.

Going a bit further afield, we have Horace Mann School Memories, Huntington County, Indiana, written in 1989, as well as the South Adams Elementary (Adams County, IN) Reunion Booklet for the Class of 1956, the Whiting (IN) High School Commencement Announcement for 1965, and Reunion Booklets for Washington High School, East Chicago, classes of 1945 and 1946 in 1981 and Classes of 1945, 1946, and 1947 in 1986. Additionally, we have the Vevay High School (Switzerland County, IN) 1938 Commencement, the 1940-1941 Directory for Vanderburgh County-Evansville (IN) Public Schools, and several photographs from Mill Creek High school in LaPorte County.

Now, we can’t forget that we also have college materials, starting with the 1908 Commencements for Marion Normal College and Valparaiso University and the 1912 Commencement for Tri-State Normal College, and a 1904-1905 Tri-State Normal State Catalogue.

Adding the Purdue University 1923 Commencement program, the Evansville College 1927 Commencement program and the Franklin College Bulletin for 1934 and we’ve got a good start, though, of course, we can’t pass Indiana University when we now have Commencement programs for 1920, 1921, 1924, 1925, 1927, 1932 and 1936 and a 1953 Emeritus Club directory. And then we have the Indiana State University, and its predecessor, Indiana State Teachers’ College Commencement programs for 1930, 1939, 1954 and 1969, and for DePauw University, the 1957 Commencement program and the 1983 Alumni Luncheon program. And, finally, the 1930, 1937 and 1963 Commencement programs for Norte Dame University.
