I'm not sure who digitized the books, but it's very nicely done, easily categorized, and you can flip pages and, except for the lack of things written in YOUR book, you'll feel like a high school kid.

There are even some pages showing John Marshall under construction, and a dance scene that's the bee's knees! So much fun to look at the clothes, the hair, and the faculty, it's just a cool flashback.
