    Got any?
    That's the short version.
    I collect old yearbooks, mostly pre-WWII. This used to be a minor hobby until EBay came along, now at any given moment there are a couple of thousand to choose from. I quit scanning them long ago, too many temptations.
    But, I am mystified that I NEVER see any from Europe, Asia, Australia, etc. The exception being the American schools in other countries. Well, Cuba also, I've seen a couple with Fidel Castro go for several hundred dollars.
    Yearbooks can't be limited to the USA, can they?
    I once bought one off Ebay that was identified as from "UK"...and got a good laugh when the University of Kentucky book arrived. :b

    I went to several schools in the UK (4) and New Zealand (4) and none had yearbooks; I don't believe it's a common practice outside the US.
