Meh Lady Yearbooks (Beulah Culbertson Archives and Special Collections)

The Meh Lady was the annual published to commemorate the events of each school year. With the exceptions of 1913-1916 and 1918-1921, the publication ran from 1902-2004. At the beginning of its run, the Meh Lady contained original art and written compositions created by students, including Eudora Welty, who was on staff from 1926-1927. The contents of the Meh Lady took on many forms in the 95 years it was published, reflecting the changes taking place on campus. These yearbooks represent the history of the W through the eyes of students and are an invaluable resource for the W community.
