Drake University Yearbooks

Cowles Library presents Drake University’s Yearbook, The Quax.

Using optical character recognition software (OCR), we have been able to create searchable transcripts for all the yearbooks. You can now keyword search several decades of Drake University’s history.

Want to find an individual? Type their name into one of the search boxes. Remember, names in yearbooks are often listed Last Name, First Name. Unfortunately, OCR technology is not perfect and “fancy” yearbook fonts may not be recognized by software, so your better search strategy may simply be to pick a year and browse the book.

There were no yearbooks published in 1976, 1977 or 1989.

Yearbooks prior to the 1931 Golden Jubilee edition can be a little confusing. The year in the title Does Not refer to the year the book was published, but to the junior class. So each of these books were published a year prior to the year in the title (ie: the 1924 Quax was published in 1923).
