The link above takes you to a search for "Yale Class Books" on the Google Books website. More class books may be available at the Internet Archive or the HathiTrust Digital Library.

    The exact titles of Yale Class Books have changed over the years, making it difficult to find them with only one set of search terms. Many titles use phrases such as "Record of the Class of" or "History of the Class of" followed by the graduation year. For an example of an additional search in Google Books that finds many more Class Books, see here.
