Pictured below are several excerpts from school yearbooks, primarily Columbine's 1999 issue yearbook. Some of the pages shown were originally supposed to be in the 1999 book but were deleted by the yearbook staff following the shootings. The left-out pages contain additional pictures and information about Eric and Dylan. You won't find them in the yearbook that was printed as the pages never made it to press. The pages were included in the Columbine Report, which is where the scans on this page are from.

Eric watches the cafeteria at Columbine

"Eric Harris relaxes during his free hour while observing activity in the cafeteria."

...I wonder if he was making notes that day?

1999 yearbook index page with Dylan and Eric's names
As an aside, I noticed a couple of things... On Eric's page another boy's quote reads "I hate this school".
On Dylan's page Lisa Kreutz's entry has a message of inspiration (she was shot in the library and survived).

The Trenchcoat Mafia Yearbook Picture

The Trenchcoat Mafia got blamed in association for what happened at Columbine though investigation has shown that they were not only NOT responsible, their contact with the two shooters was minimal -- via member Chris Morris, who was known to be outspoken in his own hatred of Columbine and was taken into custody the day of the shootings. He was questioned and later released without being charged of anything. Eric and Dylan wore oiled leather dusters frequently to school and they wore them them on 4-20-1999 when they arrived and first began shooting (though they took them off later) but this affectation seems to have been personal taste rather than a sign of affiliation. They don't appear in the school yearbook photo of the Trenchcoat Mafia (shown right).

The caption can't be read in the image
but the Columbine Report (seen right) quoted it:

Ode to the TCM

From hacking and bowling to a downtown day at a certain convention, from players and abstainers to certain teachers that we won't mention, from learning to sack and wearing black to last year's week of OOS suspension, High school is over so go get some coolio's and relieve that built-up tension. Have an awesome summer! Robyn

Eric's Signature
The scratched-out words above read "DEVIL MAN"; Eric's personal nickname for Nate. Nate told police he thought the name was stupid and only Eric called him that.
