SHSU Yearbooks

Alcalde Yearbooks

The Sam Houston State University yearbook, The Alcalde, was published for students from 1910 to 2006 and is a unique record of student life on campus. The Alcaldes provide countless images and depictions of SHSU’s general history, curriculum, and community sponsors. The Newton Gresham Library is committed to providing quality online access to past SHSU Alcaldes and is currently hard at work digitizing, describing, and uploading all available volumes. The Alcalde project is a long-term endeavor for the library and content will be periodically updated as we progress. Remember to regularly check back for newly added volumes.
