University Archives has physical copies of catalogs, course bulletins, and alumni directories. A few are digitized and available online, linked here. The catalog and course bulletins list courses offered as well as faculty and officers. Until 1921, each year’s catalog included a list of students attending and their home addresses. After 1922 this information was published in a campus telephone book (Chimes or Ternion). The finding aid for the Course Catalogs is available online through the following link: Washington University Course Catalog Collection.
The finding aid for the campus telephone books is also available online.

Catalogs of Washington University are available via Hathi Trust and Google Books (listed below). Please contact University Archives for further information on years not current in digital format.
