The Drexel University yearbook has been published each year since 1911. The name Lexerd was first used in 1913. It was created by the yearbook staff at the time and is the word Drexel spelled backward. It was chosen because it most accurately portrayed the purpose of the yearbook - to help students, alumni and the community look back at Drexel University and reflect on the time that they spent on campus. All previous years’ editions of the yearbook are available for viewing in the Drexel Archives found in the lower level of the W.W. Hagerty Library at 33rd and Market streets.
