Nyack High School Yearbooks
The Nyack Library's local history room has a fine collection of the Nyack High School's yearbook, "The Tower." In the early years the annuals were produced under various names such as "The Owl" and the "Blue and Gold." Since 1931 it has been known as "The Tower." We have books as early as 1911, 1921, 1922, 1923, 1925, 1927, 1929, and 1930. It was in 1931 that the yearbook became known as "The Tower." Our collection has a few gaps (1982, 1988, 1989, and 1992), but otherwise it is complete from 1929-2018. For complete holdings of the Tower, click here
