Marion Independent School Foundation & Alumni Association is home to a variety of artifacts spanning the long history of Marion Schools. In fact, the 1879 Marion Alumni Association was the first such Alumni Association registered in the state of Iowa, and Marion is the fourth oldest school district in the state.

The Foundation digitized copies of the Marion High School yearbook, The Quill, some student newspapers such as The Vox, early class photo composites, and a few other documents we have in our files. The items date from 1893 to 2021.

This 2022 project was supported through an Iowa Historic Preservation grant from Linn County Historical Society and by the Historical Resource Development Program of the State Historical Society of Iowa.

The Foundation hopes to periodically add to this archive.
