[Posted June 18, 2016] Nine additional editions of the University High School “Chieftains” between 1929 and 1965 are now posted on the UHEF.org Web site, and available for viewing here. You can take a look at Uni as it was in 1929, 1930, 1931, 1932, 1933, 1935, 1936, 1950 and 1965.

Also available on the site is a unique scrapbook of Uni student and faculty involvement in World War II. This notebook carefully logged the participation, theater and press clippings from those served the U.S. during the greatest conflict of the 20th Century.

While Chieftains are being posted from oldest to newest, the 1950 and 1965 yearbooks “jumped the line” thanks to the support of two devoted Uni alumni: Buddy Fischer ‘50 and Steve Sills ‘65.

If you would like to see your yearbook brought online more quickly, you can ask for “Advanced Publication.” For a donation to the UHEF of $499 (the average cost of digitizing and posting a single yearbook), a specific year can be brought forward in the order and posted online more rapidly than normal. Otherwise, the next set of yearbooks to be posted will be 1934, 1937, 1939, 1940, 1941, 1945, 1946, 1947, 1948 and 1949.

If you would like to be the Class Presenter for any of the yearbooks, please click here and in the space for “How are you affiliated with Uni?,” please write “Class Presenter 19xx” for the year which you want to support. Class Presenters receive two complimentary downloads of their year and Presenter status on the class page.
