The official yearbook for Idaho State University was called the Wickiup. It had its beginnings in 1907 when the students (particularly the senior class) of the Academy of Idaho published it. Consecutive yearbooks were also published in 1908 and 1909. The next series were for the years of 1913, 1919, and 1920. With the 1923 publication, the Wickiup became an annual publication with the exception of 1944 and 1945, until it was discontinued in 1981.

Other publications complimented the Wickiup. The Alumni Number of the Idaho Techniad appeared in the summer of 1911, and the Dittybag was published in 1944 and 1945 to emphasize the military training presence on campus. A volume called the Prowler appeared in 1980-1981 as a valiant, but failed attempt to revive the ISU yearbook.

As for the images that are here, the entire contents of the Wickiup yearbooks have been converted to an electronic format. Of the 62 available books, each page has been digitally scanned which produced approximately 12,000 pages and requires a gigabyte of file space (or approximately 700 floppy diskettes)!

The ISU Media/Distance Learning Center in conjunction with the ISU Computer Center produced this digital edition of the Wickiup. The process of scanning, formatting, and collecting data for these yearbooks was the result of the dedicated efforts of the following people:

  • Randy Stamm, Ryan Kittleson, Darren Schmidt, Rachelle High, Mike Schjeldahl, Heather McArthur, Luciana Fonseca, and Kelly Gibbs. All of which are employees and former employees of the Media/Distance Learning Center.
  • A special thanks is also given to Gary Domitz and Judy Bridges of the ISU Collections Development Department for providing the historical documents.
