Liber Brunensis (Yearbook)

The Liber Brunensis for 1870 appeared in December 1869, superseding the Brown Paper, an annual newspaper published by the secret societies. Still a publication of the secret societies, the first Liber Brunensis was a pamphlet of fifty-eight pages which printed membership lists of the various organizations and included class lists. In 1895 the Liber included lists of women students in a section headed “Co-Education.” The next year there were pictures of individual women graduates, and in 1897 lists of sorority members. In 1909 the Women’s College started its own annual, Brun Mael, which was published until 1970, after which the Liber Brunensis became the yearbook of the coeducational institution brought about by the merger of Brown and Pembroke.
