Loras College Digital Archives

This guide provides links to the Loras College yearbook, the Purgold.


The Loras College Archives are home to materials that detail the history of the College since its founding in 1839. The collection includes records from Campus organizations and departments, student theses written between 1920 and 1986, teaching and personal materials from faculty, and alumni collections.

We are in the process of digitizing the yearbook, The Purgold, and have digitized a portion of the Loras Academy newspaper, the Cee-ya, both of which can be found using the Loras Publications link on the left.

Students have also used the collection to develop digital exhibits which can be found on the Digital Exhibits tab to the left.
