Re: Wayzgoose



The Honorable Company of College Printers at Yale University has an annual
Wayzgoose.  The Company is composed of student printers from  Yale
residential colleges with active presses and their elders, and goes through
cycles of activity--I'm not sure if there was a wayzgoose this year, but in
the past they have been held in the residential college halls, and a
keepsake has been provided by one of the college presses.  An archive of
these keepsakes is available in the Arts of the Book Collection at Yale
University.

Visit the Arts of the Book Website at
http://www.library.yale.edu/~bburke/aobmain.htm and go to Student Printing
at Yale,  and you will find George Vail's "Random notes on the College
Presses, together with a History of the Honorable Company of College
Printers at Yale University" (http://www.library.yale.edu/~bburke/hccp.htm)
See the entry for April 15, 1955 for his description of the origin of the
Wayzgoose.
