Grizzly Yearbooks

Butler Community College yearbooks and Grizzly magazines are available online for everyone to view. Butler Community College, El Dorado, Kansas, was founded in 1927 as El Dorado Junior College; other names include Butler County Junior College, Butler County Community Junior College, and Butler County Community College. This collection includes the college yearbooks published as The Grizzly Growl (1928-1966) and The Grizzly (1966-1995). The Grizzly has been published in magazine format since 1996. 

This exciting project was coordinated by Butler Libraries and includes full color and cover to cover scanning of every issue of the yearbooks and magazines. Choose from a variety of formats, page through a book choosing the "read online" option, download the PDF, print PDF images and search the text of each yearbook. The project was made possible through the LYRASIS Mass Digitization Collaborative – a Sloan Foundation grant–subsidized program that has made digitization easy and affordable for libraries and cultural institutions across the country, and a local donation : Grizzly Yearbooks.

 Funding for digitization provided by the James R. Boyd Family.
