Help Us Build St. Sebastian’s Archives

In September 2016, St. Sebastian’s will be marking its 75th anniversary. In honor of this milestone, we are looking to build our archives and preserve our history for future generations of Arrows. We are looking to our alumni and parents of alumni to help us build our collection by donating photos, publications, and St. Sebastian’s memorabilia to the School. Below are some examples of items we are looking for.


We are looking for good quality images that capture a moment in the school’s history, whether it’s an event, an activity or just a snapshot of daily life at the school.
Please be sure to include the following details when sending any photographs:

  • Actual date or year the image was taken
  • People in the photo (include class years if known)
  • Brief description
  • Hard copy images can be mailed to Ed Davis in our Alumni Office or high quality scans can be sent via the Historical Photo Intake Form located below.

    Video/Film Footage

    We are also looking for any original film or video from your years at St. Sebastian's. Footage of graduation, athletic events, homecoming, etc. would be a valuable addition to our archives. Regardless of format, we would be happy to assist with converting your original videos to digital format.

    Publications and other printed materials
  • The Walrus (student newspaper)
  • Sagita (newspaper for alumni)
  • Playbills from school drama productions
  • Invitations and programs from school and athletic events

  • St. Sebastian’s Memorabilia
  • Old Jerseys
  • Helmets

  • Medals or trophies
  • Other mementos such as pennants, mugs, etc.

    We are especially seeking yearbooks from the following years: 1946, 1973, 1978

    *Please note that all items will be considered donations to the School to become a permanent part of our archives and cannot be returned.
    Please included an item description (year and any additional information you may have) when donating an archive.
