Blueprint is the official student yearbook of the Georgia Institute of Technology. It was established in 1908 as The Blue Print and is the second oldest student organization on campus.[2][3]

History[edit]

The first issue was edited by John G. Chapman. It was published for the Georgia School of Technology, as Georgia Institute of Technology was known at the time. It featured sections on the history of the school, the classes, sports, organizations, fraternities, and advertisements. Sections were broken up with poems inserted throughout the book.[4]

The yearbook was first published in 1908 under the name Blue Print.[3] The publication won some prominent awards early on, including the American Award from the National Scholastic Press Association in 1930, 1931, and 1932.[4] The name changed to Blueprint in 1956.[5]
