100 years of Case Alumnus
How has Case changed across a century? Sometimes a magazine cover is worth a thousand words.
Case Alumnus celebrates a landmark birthday this year. We turn 100 years old, having published continuously since 1921. That’s a legacy that places the magazine in a small circle of university alumni publications nationally. America’s oldest alumni magazine, Yale’s, beat us by 31 years.
For a century, Case Alumnus has mapped the trajectory of Case, covering the students, professors, researchers and history-makers of a remarkable institution. We are proud to serve as the flagship publication of the Case Alumni Association, the oldest independent alumni association of engineering and applied science graduates in America.
Many of our 25,160 subscribers view an online edition of the magazine, but the majority — more than 17,000 — prefer to receive a print edition in the mail, as alumni did before them.
To celebrate our centennial, art director Lillian Messner arranged a selection of Alumnus covers from across the decades; illustrations and images that speak to a time, a trend and often a moment in history.
