Contents of Collection

This collection consists of yearbooks published for the graduating classes of SUNY Maritime College from 1922 through 2016. Yearbooks were not published prior to 1922 nor from 1924-1938. In 1951 there was no graduating class and yearbooks have not been located for the years 1997, 2001, 2002 and 2005 (it's possible they may not have been published those years).

A typical yearbook includes a listing of that year's graduating class (usually with photographs), as well as highlights from that year's school activities. These books also include information regarding the faculty and staff at the college.
