Someday when I move to assisted living it will all be thrown away.
I was the editor also, but darn, if I do not have a copy. I left it at home and its not there now.

I am planning on going to our school and look at their copy. I want to make scan the student pics.

We have a facebook page and some of us want to stay in touch.

Kept it for many years, got rid of it when we moved and downsized.

I have all of them, parents have at least some of theirs. My grandmother worked as a cook at the county high school and has annuals from numerous years.

I believe that Classmates (I think that is it's name) has yearbooks online for many schools. I know that it has ones from my HS for all four years that I attended.

Some people buy old yearbooks off of Craigslist or eBay.

I was the yearbook photographer so all the photos in my senior yearbook from 1969 were mine. Exwife threw all my yearbooks away, along with my lettermans jacket. Wish I could find a copy would be fun to look through.

I was stupid, and never bought one. I should have bought at least the senior year book. Now, it's impossible to find one.

P.S. Scratch that! I just checked Ebay again, and finally found one for sale "Buy it Now"! I've been checking for this since 1998, and this is the first one listed! Yep, I bought it.

I threw my yearbook away a few years later. I hated high school and didn't want to keep anything reminding me of my days there.

I don't know why that I never bought one. I saw one at my 40th high school reunion and I wish I had bought one now. I do still have every school picture, including my high school portrait.

My highschool class [750+] formed a FB page. Each of our yearbooks have been posted online for all to see.

For my senior year, my photos were submitted, but the yearbook committee [cheerleaders] did not include me in our senior yearbook. On the last page of the yearbook, is a listing, 8 columns of names, of all the seniors whose photos were not included in the yearbook. In a class of 750+ you needed to personally know a cheerleader, for them to include you. If you were not friends with any cheerleader than you were not included in their yearbook.

At class reunions, the cheerleaders make name tags using your senior photo [if you were among the popular kids whose photos were published in the yearbook]. Otherwise the rest of us just write our own names on a blank name tag as we get there.

The class reunions manage to draw over 100 people each time.

I do not have a yearbook. I had a fulltime job starting when I was a sophomore, and I stayed fulltime employed until after graduation when I enlisted in the Navy.

On the FB page they have photos from some football games and marching band parades. I never saw any of those games or parades myself, because I had to work. So now by looking on FB, I have gotten to see what those popular kids were doing. But really 35+ years after the fact, I don't care.

Being such a large school, there were so many faces. I do not recognize many of them. I attended one reunion and nobody remembered me either.

I threw it away. I reconnected with some of them on facebook, and discovered that they were the same a-holes that they were when they were in high school. I wasn't popular then and now almost 50 years later, apparently I was still in the unpopular group to be crapped on that I was 50 years ago.

So I threw it away.
