The Petrean: Archive

Since 1922, the Petrean has chronicled life at Grand & Warren through the eyes of the students, and especially the senior class. Much has changed in the past 90 years, including the title – it was originally known as the Cephean – but Prep's yearbook has remained a constant presence. Taken as a whole, the Petrean is a document of changing styles, tastes and times, but also of the continuity of the Prep tradition throughout the generations. We invite you to browse our collection and discover Prep as you remember it, or as your father or grandfather remembered it, or even as your son or grandson remembers it!

The yearbooks scanned for this project come from the Office of Alumni Relations. Some pages are marked with handwritten notes, an artifact of a bygone era in which the notes of Fr. James Dolan, S.J., '32 in the margins of our yearbooks were our only "database" of alumni information like weddings, changes of address and deaths. We hope you will look upon any of these notes not as "damage" but as part of the historical character of a particular collection of Prep yearbooks!

You can read the yearbooks online from your computer or mobile device, or download the PDFs and print them if you prefer. The online viewer even includes a handy search feature, so you can quickly find yourself or your friends by name! Just click the maginfiying glass (circled at left) at the bottom of the reading view to search within that book!

 You can help make our collection complete! Certain yearbooks are missing from our collection. Each decade notes which, if any, are absent.
