This month, two collections are featured on the OCLC website: Weather Vane Collection and Hennepin County School Yearbooks Collection.   

Weather Vane Collection

Weather Vane Collection

Sadie Hartzler Library, Eastern Mennonite University

The student newspaper was first published in 1939 as a mimeographed, letter-size publication. In 1956 it changed to a newspaper format and the numbering was restarted with volume 1.

Hennepin County School Yearbooks Collection

Hennepin County School Yearbooks Collection

Hennepin County  Library, Minneapolis, MN

This collection of Minneapolis and Hennepin County school yearbooks from 1890–1977 is funded in part by Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and the Friends of the Hennepin County Library.

The collection includes yearbooks of public and private schools, academies, and other educational institutions in Minneapolis and Hennepin County. The yearbooks were acquired by purchase and through donations from the schools and many individuals.

The collection also includes a page from the 1974 Central High School (Minneapolis) yearbook with a photo of the late musician Prince (then a sophomore). He’s the young man with the huge afro below the name “P. Nelson.”
