“The Concordian” During the years 1913 - 1959 the name of Concordia’s yearbooks has remained the same - Whereas between 1955 and 1959 two separate copies of “The Concordian” were produced each year; one told the story of the Preparatory School and the other one of the Junior College.

In addition to “The Concordian” another publication was produced between the years of 1920 and 1940, it was called “Blue and Gold,” which superseded the traditional yearbook for a couple of years. An additional finding aid was created for this collection and can be found in the database under the record group P-0013.
