Subseries I.1: Columbia College, 1869-2021


The Columbiad

Published by the junior class of Columbia College, the Columbiad dates back to 1864. Back then it was a 4-sheet publication, which listed the names of students, faculty members, trustees, as well as the names of the officers of Philolexian and Peithologian. In 1868 there was a disagreement between the editors and two volumes were published by rival fraternities. The old form of 4 sheets (48 cm) was published by the Delta Phi; the "new" form (23.5 cm) adopted by Psi Upsilon obtained official recognition of the class and was continued. The 1880 edition was the first to include illustrations.
