Commencement programs

Did you know we’ve digitized our commencement programs? We have intermittent programs from 1863 to 1916 and all available programs from 1922 to the present. Commencement ceremonies were held primarily annually until 1970, with the notable exception of the World War II period. After 1970 commencement ceremonies were held bi-annually, with the familiar May-December schedule beginning in 1973. You can page through each program, search for names or keywords, or download your own PDF copy through this site.
