Wakefield High School Yearbooks dating back to 1907 are now online!
The yearbooks can be viewed as PDF files, or better yet, in a special viewer that allows you to thumb through the pages just like a physical book. You can also search for any name or word in the book, enabling you to find references to people no matter where they appear – in class listings, extracurricular activities, superlatives, or any other section.
