Biographical / Historical

Published annually, the Austin Peay Yearbook was a student publication documenting activities at the Austin Peay State University campus. First published in 1946, the yearbook ran for several years under the name Farewell and Hail. This was also the name of an annual ceremony held at Austin Peay as a farewell for graduates and a passing of the torch to the undergraduate classes. The tradition of the ceremony began in 1934 and was held regularly through 1972. Around the early 1980s the name of the yearbook was changed to Governor’s Pride. This name remained through the end of the run of the publication in the early 1990s. The yearbook publication was revived in the late 2000s as The Monocle.
