  1. My great aunt and uncle attended Des Moines College in 1915, 1916, 1917. Do you have any of the yearbooks from those years for that college?

    1. Janet, Thank you for following my blog. Des Moines College from 1915 to 1917 was a separate entity. It was a Baptist institution which closed its doors in 1918 when it merged with Highland Park College and many others to be come Des Moines College (1918-1920) then later Des Moines University (1921-1929). Most of my yearbooks are from Highland Park College and Des Moines College/Des Moines University from 1920-1930. If you are located in Des Moines, Iowa, or close to it, visit the Central branch of the Des Moines Public Library. They have the years you would be looking for:$002f$002fSD_ILS$002f0$002fSD_ILS:126024/ada?qu=%22Des+Moines+College%22

  2. My Grandmother wrote that she graduated from Highland Park College in 1916 before WWI. Do you have that one? Her maiden name was Kathryn Zieke and she was in the Music Department on Piano.

    Thank you,
    Diane Adamson

    1. Diane, I looked through the 1916 annual I have and could not locate Kathryn Zieke in the graduating class of 1916 or listed in graduating from the Music Department. Might she have graduated in the 1916-1917 mid year? She would then appear in the 1917 year book?

      1. I looked through the 1918 yearbook and was unable to locate her in that either. If you want to truly know what years she attended, contact Sioux Falls Universtiy. They have what is left of the student records of Highland Park College. The music department was dropped as a degree you could major in when the Baptist bought the school in the spring of 1918.

  3. My Great Uncle graduated from Highland Park College I believe. I do not find him listed in the 1906 invitation but his picture in in the May Day Festival program as King. I have the original studio picture of him as King also.
