Bridgman High School Yearbook Collection

Did you know the library maintains an extensive collection of Bridgman High School Yearbooks? In fact, we have issues going back as far as 1926 available for easy, onsite viewing. Sadly, that collection is not quite complete. Would anyone be able to help fill in the gaps? We are missing annuals for 1952 and 1988, and 2013.
