Copies of the Pasticcio are found here, with editions from 1925-current. You may access some earlier editions in person too, but these are too fragile to be digitized at this time.
The first Clark yearbook was published in 1905, called The Pioneer. Later, the June edition of The Clark Monthly replaced the annual yearbook. It was eventually named The Pasticcio and was published annually in May or June.
Pasticcios contain a wealth of information, including clubs, graduating students, and class histories.
