To the Editor: I thank The Hoya for its editorial “Don’t Doom the Yearbooke,” (The Hoya, Feb. 16, 2007, A2), because it’s the first time I’ve heard of Georgetown’s yearbook since I saw one from 1992 in my high school. However, The Hoya places a greater burden on the student body than the yearbook staff in getting the book off the ground. Yet I can’t find one link on the university’s Web site about Ye Domesday Booke that doesn’t involve the library’s archives. Nor do I see any fliers on campus advertising the book or a need for students. The awareness of the yearbook is minuscule. I haven’t seen one carried around by students, or even anticipated by them. I’d love to have a yearbook. It’s a great publication, and I’m sure that what is produced every year by the organization is of high quality. But if we don’t know about it, we will not care about it. Ye Domesday Booke’s editors should publicize their efforts, promote their organization and make us care to have a yearbook if it is to continue. George Chipev (SFS ’09) Feb. 16, 2007
