Cowles Library presents Drake University's Yearbook, The Quax. Using optical character recognition software (OCR), we have been able to create searchable transcripts for all the yearbooks. What does that mean? It means you can now keyword search several decades of Drake University's history.
Want to find an individual? Type their name into the search box above. Didn't find them on your first search? Try again. Remember, often names in yearbooks are listed Last Name, First Name. Also, OCR technology is not perfect, and it doesn't help that editors like to use fancy fonts that machines do not easily recognize, so you may want to pick a year and browse the whole book.
Tip: Yearbooks prior to the 1931 Golden Jubilee edition can be a little confusing. The year in the title Does Not refer to the year the book was published, but to the junior class. So each of these books were published a year prior to the year in the title (ie: the 1924 Quax was published in 1923).
