The Polytechnic Journal, Cal Poly’s first student publication, made its debut in 1906 as a monthly news and literary publication. By 1912, the Polytechnic Journal was no longer a monthly, having evolved into the campus yearbook. In 1927 the Polytechnic Journal was renamed the El Rodeo. The El Rodeo yearbook series is complete from 1927 to 1980, excepting 1943-1945, when publication was suspended during World War II, and between 1972-1976, when it was not published. El Rodeo was published one last time in 1990.
