Description
A copy of Wiley College yearbook, titled "The Wildcat" from the year 1931. The front cover has scratch-like incisions throughout and [The / WILDCAT] in black relief at the top center. A depiction of a wildcat (just face, frontal, growling with mouth open and teeth showing), inside a circle with elaborate relief decorations around it is at the center of the cover. [1931] is etched at the bottom center, below the wildcat relief. The back cover is blank but has the same scratch-like texture as the front.

There is a page-long signature in black ink on the first [Autographs] page, at the back of the yearbook.
