The La Encina Yearbook provides a comprehensive, appealing, and diverse record of the present school year for the benefit of the current and future Occidental community. It provides a chronicle of each academic year and portrays the school as a whole, in this case, for the year 1933. Ward Ritchie (1905-1996), graduated from Occidental College in 1929, was invited to design the Yearbook, and was most likely the key to the distinguished names of consultants listed in the colophon. This copy from the Library of Muir Dawson.
