The "MIRROR" was first published in 1926, and contained only six pictures. It was sub-titled "Reflections of the Class of 1926." Senior names and activities were included, but there were no individual senior pictures. This first "MIRROR" contained mostly write-ups of various activities, compositions and jokes. Although the "MIRROR" has greatly changed throughout the years it has been printed, each class has tried to retain its original purpose - to come forth with an accurate and descriptive record of the four years spent at Ilion High.

"The Mirror" was the source of many Class Histories that appear on this web site. The Class History was a wonderful, concise, written summary of the four years each graduating class spent at Ilion High School. It usually included the names of class officers, for each of the four years, highlights of each year including homecoming floats, fund-raising activities, traditions, dances, etc.. Unfortunately, recent yearbook editions have eliminated this written article and historical record from "The Mirror". The Class History has been abandoned in favor of small photos, photos and more photos. There is no longer one "go to place", in the yearbook, to discover the Class History.

Over the years, many Ilion students have assumed the role of Editor-in-Chief of The Mirror.
