The Great Fire, Maryland Agriculture College, 1912

Reveille 1913

This student-produced yearbook includes a description of campus life amidst the immediate aftermath of the fire. In it you will find photographs and a description of the event through the eyes of a student writer. In keeping with the M.A.C. cadets' positive attitude toward reconstruction and revitalization, the editors chose to include many traditional yearbook entries for student profiles, sports, and campus organizations, not allowing the fire tragedy to overwhelm the publication's contents.
