Item Information

Title:
Service is Greatness Book, a Springfield College yearbook, 1898
Description:
The Springfield College, at the time called the International YMCA Training School, publication called "Service is Greatness: a Retrospective of Student Days." This publication acted as the yearbook for the class of 1898. This document included a Class Picture, History of the class, pictures of the early campus, including the newly completed Administration Building (then just known as the Dormitory Building), the prophesy of the class, the class song, and the exercises for the commencement. 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.
