UI Alumni database
The University of Illinois Alumni Association has announced it will create a
memorial to all graduates of the
university who died in service during wartime. If you know of a UI alumnus or alumna who died in any war,
check the following lists to make sure the name has been properly recorded:
Alumni Record of the University of Illinois, 1906
Editor: Frank William Scott
This is a book that my husband found at
an antique sale a few years ago. It contains biographical sketches of all the alumni in the
classes up through 1905, with parents, parent birthplace & birthdate, spouse, marriage date,
children, children's birthdates. Sketches are also included for all faculty and trustees through that
date. A list of graduates for 1906 is included, but there is no genealogical or biographical information for
any of them, so I have not included them in this database.
|Rootsweb ID||Type of entry||Notes||1-2537||Undergraduate alumni||All should have a GRAD: (year) University of Illinois note. The ID numbers are the same as the numbers assigned to them sequentially in the book.||2538-2565||Graduate alumni||The alumnus will have a GRAD date and an IDNO starting with G.||2566-2599||Honorary alumni||The alumnus will have an IDNO starting with H.||2600-4136||Faculty, trustees, their parents, spouses and children||The faculty member or trustee will have an OCCUPATION note and there should be a page number in the IDNO field.||4137-10600||Parents, spouses and children of undergrad and graduate alumni, through 1906||Find the grad with the primary entry by looking for a GRAD note on the parents, spouse, or children.||10600-end||Alumni, faculty, trustees, their parents, spouses and children from 1906 to 1912.||Find the grad in each family (usually the lowest ID in the family). The second book has a slightly different numbering scheme, so the alumnus number is in the IDNO field.|
I'm happy to transcribe the entries and e-mail them to you. I am hesitant to attempt to copy the book or scan it all in because it is rather fragile.
Please do not send me additional information on individuals in the book, interesting though it is; I am restricting this database to facts in the book alone. If you wish to annotate any entry or to find others interested in the same person, feel free to add a Post-Em to the Rootsweb entry.
Alumni Record of the University of Illinois, 1913
Editor: James Herbert Kelley
I now have a copy of this later edition and can also transcribe any of these entries if you wish.
