Scope and Content: The Midlander yearbooks are arranged in three series.

The first series is the social series, which consists of Midlander yearbooks with writing in the pages. They range from 1926 to 1990, with the bulk of the collection between 1926 and 1961. This includes one copy of the 1933 Vista , a reduced version of the Midlander.

The second series is the archival series, which consists of archival copies of each Midlander from 1929 to 2004, including the 1933 Vista. We attempt to preserve two clean copies of each year's edition. We do not have archival copies of some years and welcome donations of copies for our set. The 1931 Midlander is available through the link below as scans courtesy of Linebaugh Public Library, Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

There is also a series of Midlanders available for reference purposes in the research room of the center.

Related Collections: Other copies of the Midlander may be found in the Louise Mott Miles Papers, Louise Norris Papers, and Q. M. Smith Papers.
