This collection of Dodo magazines was amassed from the USAFA McDermott Library, Special Collections Section, in addition to personal collections of classmates and alumni. Some issues have missing pages, and some undoubtedly have pages wrongly attributed to a particular issue. Contributions, corrections, and clarifications always appreciated.
A selection of the magazines were published on legal-size paper (from approximately February 1958 to February 1959). Due to scan limitations, some portion of the page may be cropped. Content is never omitted, except in some cases where portions of headers, titles or drawings may be cropped. If necessary, the page was scanned twice to fully include content. In those cases, both partial page scans are included to ensure all content is available.
Volume and issue numbering of the original magazine was inconsistent and sometimes simply wrong. The original numbering system attributed a new volume number to each academic year. I have continued that convention even when it conflicted with the annotation of the actual issues, so each successive volume here is a new academic year. For a master cross-referenced list with actual issue, volume number, and dates, click the link, right.
Paul Lasen, Class of 1959, for several early issues of the Dodo. From Paul:
I seriously doubt that they [The Dodos] were read by the Cadets. Our schedule was so full that we did not have time to read about what we were doing. We had plenty to keep us occupied with the courses we were taking and they were the priority for our reading and studying time. We had a solid “lights out” at 2200. Reveille was likely at 0600. Classes were Monday thru Friday with a half day on Saturday and then a Parade after lunch.
Michael Ditmore and David Connaughton, Class of 1965, for their contribution of several Dodo issues. Check out their Dodo archive website thedodolives.org
