Faces from Sub Turri
Since 1913, when the entire 44-man senior class posed in chin-high detachable collars, the Boston College yearbook Sub Turri has published portraits of some 100,000 graduates. Working with the Boston College Libraries’ digitized editions, BCM has produced an online flipbook containing the headshots of every graduating student included in the yearbook through 2007. The site is searchable by year and, within years, alphabetically by name. A search for “Ryan” turned up the faces above, including John E. ’18, who joined the Army in 1917 and never graduated, and Margaret ’14 (daughter of Michael A. ’86), a sociology major from Kingston, New York, who edited the undergraduate journal SocialEyes.
