Milestone, the Hope College yearbook, is an annual publication of Hope College. The first yearbook was published in 1905 as a single edition and was titled The Hope College Annual. The yearbooks became an annual publication in 1916, which was also when it was titled Milestone.
This digital archive includes all copies of the Milestone without abridgment or exclusions. Issues contained in the digital archives and in the originally published yearbooks contain, in some years, images and content that is offensive. Such content is not condoned by Hope College and is not reflective of our Hope College values, nor our commitment to being a welcoming community that affirms the dignity of all persons. To remove or redact them from our historical record would be counter to archival standards. They will remain as historical documents — reminders to be vigilant in our efforts to be both inclusive and transparent.
