About this collection

The Bluebonnet is the annual yearbook of the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, Belton, Texas. It contains photographs of students, faculty, staff and administration, and photos and stories of campus activities and events throughout the year. In addition to providing memories for students, the yearbooks offer an annual history of the university.


The first Blue Bonnet (originally spelled in this manner) was published in 1904. The name, Blue Bonnet, reminded the students of “the large field of beautiful blue and green flowers stretching over the hill west of the college.” A thin volume, it contained individual photographs of the senior class members, and group pictures of the other classes, the few clubs and the class sports teams. In 1907, the second Blue Bonnet was published, and then it was irregularly produced until after World War I. Since 1919, the Bluebonnet has been published annually.


Originally put together by the Senior Class each year until 1919, the Bluebonnet is created by a student editor and staff with faculty supervision.
