History of The Gumbo

The Gumbo yearbook has chronicled each year in the life of Louisiana State University in photographs and in words since 1900. Only one year, the 1918-1919 school year, was missed, when wartime pressures caused the cancellation of the book. A magazine version, called Gumbo Magazine, chronicled the 1992-93 and 1993-94 school years because revenues were insufficient for a hardbound book. A student referendum increasing the yearbook fee brought back the hardbound version in 1995.
