The Society also seeks geneology information from the public.
The Society has a collection of Phoenixville High School, yearbooks since they were first published in 1930. Researchers visiting our library find these publications to be valuable resources for family history. We would like to fill the "holes" in our collection and would welcome donations of yearbooks for the following years: 1981, 1982, 1986, 1987, 1993, 1997, 2003, and 2008
Prior to 1930, Phoenixville High School, published smaller booklets under the title "Purple and White" as commencement issues and additional issues in some years. We seek issues of the "Purple and White" for the following years: any pre 1908 issues, 1914, 1915, and 1916. None were published in 1917 to 1920.
We also have yearbooks from the Northern Chester County Technical School from 1982 to 1988, and we would appreciate donations of yearbooks for the other years.
