Student yearbooks from Western Carolina University are now available on DigitalNC. Ranging in date from 1918 to 2005, the online collection includes 73 volumes. The yearbooks are from the Special Collections department in Hunter Library at Western Carolina.
Western Carolina has many well-known graduates, but I was surprised to learn, when working on the yearbooks, that author David Sedaris, originally from Raleigh, briefly attended the school. He didn’t graduate, transferring to Kent State after a year or so, but he did stick around long enough to get his picture in the 1976 edition of The Catamount
(p. 239). And it’s quite a picture.
