If you want to know the history of your school, you will find it in the annual yearbooks, the OLNEANS.   That history includes school officials, such as teachers, and the learning programs: academic, occuptional, music and arts, and sports.  The Olnean pages document the culture of Olney from the turn of the last century to today.

We directors of Tiger Pride Alumni Association (TPAA) decided to place our "Olnean" collection on permanent loan at the Olney Library.  

To offer us Olneans for our growing collection, send an email to Clarence "Smitty" Smith, Director, Tiger Pride Alumni Association at  smithcj2@nwcable.net

We will add to that collection until we have a complete set of all yearbooks published for the school -- Olney High School, Olney Township High School, Olney Area High School, and East Richland High School.  To do that we need the help of our members.  Over the past three years, members have donated Olneans passed down to them from their families.  Currently members have given us most of the yearbooks from the 30s and 40s.

And we don't mind having extras as we hope to donate also to the collections at other institutions in Olney, including Carnegie Building Museum?.  Also, in time we may have extras that we can share with TAC members and Tiger Pride Alumni Association friends.  In short, we're not going to turn any offer down.
