Friends and families of former students of Winston-Salem City and  R.J. Reynolds High Schools will be pleased to hear that a slew of yearbooks from 1911-1963 have been digitized by the folks over at UNC Chapel Hill and are now available online at DigitalNC. Perusers will want to keep in mind that from 1936-1955 multiple schools were included in each yearbook: Reynolds, Hanes (originally North High School) and Gray (originally South High School).

Forsyth County Public Library relies on donations from library users to build its yearbook collection. When we acquire enough yearbooks from a school we loan them to UNC Chapel Hill to be digitized. In the last few years we have been trying to expand our collection of yearbooks from historically black high schools such as Atkins and Carver but few people are donating them. If you or someone you know is looking for a good home for a yearbook from one of these schools we would love to have it.
