The Colonial Echo, the student yearbook of the College of William and Mary, began publication in 1899 and has been published since then except for 1900 and 1904 when no volumes were produced. In addition to photographs of students, the yearbook includes information about student groups and activities, campus events, student interpretations of the larger society, scenes of campus and the surrounding area, as well as information about university administrators and faculty in its early years.

Swem Library was able to digitize the 1899-1995 yearbooks through the support of funds established by School of Education Professor Emeritus Armand Galfo and his wife Mary, and History Professor Emeritus Richard Sherman and his wife Hanni. Support of alumni, Friends, and donors is vitally important to maintaining the high level of services Swem offers to the College community. Digitization by the Internet Archive was made possible through the LYRASIS Mass Digitization Collaborative with funding from LYRASIS members and the Sloan Foundation. A complete press release about the project is available.

As a result of this project the Colonial Echo is also available via the Internet Archive where users can browse the yearbook online as well as download to e-readers such as Kindle.

Volumes of the Colonial Echo are available in the Swem Library stacks, Swem Reference, and Special Collections Research Center. The Special Collections Research Center in Swem Library keeps multiple copies of the Colonial Echo for use by researchers and in exhibits. For certain years, Special Collections has extra copies of yearbooks which have come to the department from a variety of sources - university offices reducing their own extra copies, alumni who are downsizing, etc. If you are searching for a copy of the yearbook from your William and Mary years, contact the University Archivist to inquire if an extra copy is available. For the most recent issues of the Colonial Echo, contact the yearbook’s Editor-in-Chief.
