Torch Yearbook 1963

Editor: Shirley Bowler Blanchard

In 1963, the University at Albany student community celebrated Pedagogue’s 50th Anniversary by reinventing itself as Torch Yearbook and foregoing the traditional format of posed group photos. It became the campus’ unique student-led perspective for over five decades through the lens of University Photo Service student photographers, heralding free expression by publishing without editorial control from the University administration. The book featured Photography Coordinator G. Monroe.
