The Springfield College, at the time called the International YMCA Training School, Commencement Exercises Book for the Class of 1896. This was considered to be the college's yearbook for this year. The ceremonies were held on June 17, 1896. the booklet contains a photograph of the class, the class poem, the class history, the class song, the class oration by Agide Pirazzini, the class prophecy, a listing of the class, and the schedule of events. The Springfield College Yearbooks collection contains yearbooks and class histories created by the students and administration of Springfield College. Before 1904 Springfield College did not have an official Yearbook, but had publications of various levels of expertise. These included printed "Class Books" and “Class Histories” for various years from 1894 to 1903. As far as we know there were no yearbook-like-documents produced before 1894. After 1904 the yearbook has been called the Massasoit, named after Lake Massasoit upon the shores of which the college sits. Most yearbooks contain information on graduating students, activities of the proceeding years, pictures of faculty and staff, athletic team pictures and information, club information, and pictures and text outlining class histories and the graduating seniors, and other information deemed appropriate by the editors. There were no yearbooks produced from 1918-1919 and 1944-1946.
