All of the old ISU yearbooks (called the Bomb) are now available online at:  If you would like to peruse print copies of the Bomb, an incomplete copy is available in the Parks Library General Collection at LD2548 .Io9b and the Special Collections Reading Room has a more complete print set (Parks Library - Room 403). The Bomb began in 1894 and was printed by Representative Print, a printing company in Nevada, Iowa.  The actual publication of the Bomb moved over to the Collegiate Press starting in 1929.  It ceased publication in 1993.
