The Sophograph (Digital Surrogates)

Digitized surrogate of the Sophograph published by the sophomore class in an annual commentary on students and university life, featuring articles, poetry, cartoons, photographs, quotations describing personalities, class rolls, directories of student officers, class histories, class rivalries, athletic activities, military drill, social events, jokes and advertisements. The 1883 issue was titled The Saturnian. In 1894, the Illio replaced the Sophograph as the student annual.
