Wanted: Yearbooks and the Alhi Times

We would love to have a complete collection of yearbooks here at the Douglas County Historical Society as a research resource.  Our oldest “yearbook” is from 1900, and we are in great shape sequentially until we get to more modern times!

We are looking for:  Jefferson High School Alexian Yearbooks 1983, 1984, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2003, 2012, 2013, 2014, and the new Alexandria Area High School yearbook, 2015.

We also have a great collection of bound issues of the ALHI Times (aka Alex High News), the school newspaper of Alexandria High Schools published since 1924, but are missing bound volumes 14 – 15, for the years 1967 – 1968.

If you can help us complete our resource collection,Call us at (320) 762-0382 or email us at historic@dchsmn.org.
