Vintage Yearbook – Sooner 1949

Thought I’d share a vintage yearbook I picked up a few years ago at a library book sale for like $2. The cover is a little banged up but the pages inside are in great condition.

They don’t make books like this anymore. The cover has a great embossed design. The inside has photos of the about 12,000 students and staff who attended the University of Oklahoma in 1949. There are some really interesting photos showing people’s vintage 1940’s hairstyle and clothes.

I also do family history research and yearbooks are a wealth of information. I’m happy to do look-ups for people with relatives that may be in this yearbook and send your a photo of the page.

If you go to my flickr you can see my pictures full size and the photos of the index with the list of people’s names.
