The Purple Patcher Available Online

The cover of the 2002 Purple Patcher is shown with a megaphone and the words, "We have news to share!"

Archives & Distinctive Collections is excited to share that the majority of volumes of the Purple Patcher, the College of the Holy Cross’ student yearbook, have been digitized and are available online.
Beginning in 1907, with a brief hiatus during World War II, the Purple Patcher captures student life on campus.
Special thanks to our student workers and Alumni Relations for helping make this important digitization effort possible!
Physical copies can be found in the Holy Cross Archives and the digitized copies can be found at:
