The Pesagi Yearbook
Click the link below to view the ECU Pesagi Yearbooks. Because the files are large, they make take some time to load. But they are worth the wait!
Starting with the first yearbook in 1913, we have digitized all issues except the five most recent years (ECU did not publish the Pesagi in 1918, 1929-1947, and 1952-1955). You can also find all the yearbooks (in paper) in the library - please stop in during your next campus visit. You can buy copies of some previous yearbooks from the ECU Communications and Marketing Department (580.559.5650). Enjoy!
Other Library Collections
In addition to the Pesagi (yearbook) and The Journal (student newspaper), the library has several other collections that you might find interesting.
- Scrapbooks: Mrs. Elvan George donated her scrapbooks covering the football program during her husband's time as coach.
- Pictures: The library houses a number of pictures of the campus.
- East Central Oklahoma Collection: This collection contains local history materials, books by local authors, and materials relating to oil field history and culture, the Five Civilized Tribes, and Oklahoma politics.
- The Crawford Collection: Former Pontotoc county district judge Johnson Tal Crawford was a member of the first US Military Tribunal to conduct the Nazi War Crimes Trials at Nuremberg. In addition to photos, transcripts, letters, and other background documentation, his papers include his multi-volume set of the trial proceedings. This set is a gift from Elwood and Gloria Kip.
