"The first 'annual' was issued in 1897 and was called Aurora. When this name was transferred to the literary magazine in 1900, a new name was needed for the senior annual; thus, the designation Silhouette came into use in 1901. This name was suggested, according to Professor Louise McKinney, by Miss Anna W. Lytle, who taught English in the Institute from 1899 to 1901. The Silhouette has continued to be published ever since with the exception of 1919, just at the end of World War I, when the savings from not publishing an annual were given to war relief."
