Yearbooks a big part of Denver high school museums

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

East High School in Denver, like a lot of schools, has a rich history that goes back 100 years. Championship teams, famous alums – and it’s all chronicled in the school’s own museum.

Naturally, the school’s yearbooks from over the years – including the first one from 1909 – are an important part of the memorabilia, as The Denver Post outlined in this article.

Does your school have its own museum? How many years back does your school’s yearbook go?
