This collection contains two series. The printed yearbooks of Dixie State University from 1913-2000 and the 2001 video yearbook comprise the first series. The second series contains the advertisements and contracts that went into printing the yearbooks between 1983 and 1995.
The published yearbooks evolved along with the school. The first yearbooks are small, but often contain quotes from individual students and faculty. Since the student body was very small when Dixie Academy first started, the student body collectively prepared the first several yearbooks. The later years focus more on groups and events, as not all students were photographed for the yearbooks. These yearbooks cover 1913 to 2001 with a few years missing; 1917, 1919, 1927, 1931, 1933, 1934, 1936, and 1937. After extensive searching, it is assumed yearbooks were not produced during these years.
In general the yearbooks cover the history and growth of the school from its beginings as the Dixie Stake Academy to its evolution as the Dixie State College of Utah. The students, clubs, events, sports teams, and sports clubs are represented in the yearbooks.
The high school and college shared the same yearbook until 1964 when the two schools began printing separate yearbooks.
The second series in the collection contains advertising and printing contracts for 1983 to 1995.
