Kentucky State University Yearbooks

Paul G. Blazer Library

 Special Collections and Archives

Kentucky State University’s Special Collections and Archives Department has digitized its yearbooks from 1916 to 2005. The first five issues (1916 – 1920) of the yearbook, are entitled, Students Bulletin. These issues feature a history of our University when it was known as the Kentucky Normal and Industrial Institute. The yearbooks that follow the Students Bulletin publications range from 1948 – 2005, with some gaps in publication dates. While browsing through the yearbooks, please keep in mind the various name changes Kentucky State University (KSU) has undergone through the years. KSU became Kentucky State College for Negros in 1938. Therefore,  the yearbooks published from 1948 to 1952, were published under that name.  Those yearbooks published after 1952, were published under Kentucky State College, and those published in  1972, the year that we became Kentucky State University, and forward are published under KSU. Each yearbook may be downloaded as an Adobe PDF file. All of our yearbooks are available here online; the 2010 issue will be added soon. If you have any questions, please contact Sharon McGee, the Archives Records Manager, or Hettie Oldham, the Archives Assistant.  YearbookPic
