Remembering the Savitar: Our Grounds & Buildings
Welcome to the Savitar, the University of Missouri yearbook. "The Savitar," began publication in 1894, continuing its tradition through 2005. Within, the Savitar offers photographs of faculty, students, campus events, and extracurricular activities. Because the Savitar's tradition at the University survived over a century, interestingly, we are able to trace the evolution of campus and its facilities. This collection seeks to answer the question: "How did the University come to be?" Whether it be The Columns, Jesse Hall, or Memorial Union, The Savitar captures an inside perspective of the University's development, and its commentary on campus activities can help approach this question. Rome wasn't built in a day--and neither was Mizzou. But, over the century, the University has developed considerably, and hopefully this collection captures the fascinating timeline of such progress.
