Murivians and Sagamores (Brookline High School Yearbooks and Newspapers)
The Murivian is the Brookline High School Yearbook. Because of vandalism and theft, we store our copies in a locked area of our stacks. We have the following editions:
- 1923 - 1993
Most volumes are complete, but some have had pictures or pages torn out. They are available for your perusal upon request, but we ask that you leave a positive ID while you look at them.
How the Murivian got its name: From 1923-1935, the yearbook was called The Yearbook, Brookline High School. In 1936, the title was changed to The Murivian and the following explanation appeared:
The Year 1936 celebrates not only the fourteenth anniversary of the yearbook but also the initial appearance of this annual as the "Murivian," a name derived from Brookline's historical title "Muddy River."
