The Campanile is the Rice University Yearbooks

The Rice Institute (later Rice University) opened in the Fall of 1912. Rice University's yearbook, The Campanile, was first published in 1916, by the seniors of the first graduating class.

Another important publication, the Rice Thresher (student newspaper), also began publication that year, in January of 1916.

From the very beginning the yearbook featured portraits of students and faculty, societies and clubs, athletics, major campus events and festivities, as well as advertisements from the community.

The yearbooks are presented here as full text searchable pdf files.

Other viewing and download options such as online page turning view and Kindle downloads are also available on the Internet Archive, for the first 20 yearbooks, at http://www.archive.org/details/riceuniversity.
