University Alumni Directory

The University Alumni Directory is, as its name implies, a directory of Columbia University Alumni. It's how Columbia keeps track of you to get your money.

Columbia has printed something approximating a list of graduates since as early as 1815, and continued printing hard copies until 2006, when it was switched solely to an online system. Columbia is so proud of its dropouts, it once even printed a volume just for them!

The modern online directory is patchy. While it includes an entry for each living alumnus, by default his contact information is hidden; people have to opt in. The alumni office, in the name of privacy, is notoriously strict about not disclosing this information (despite the existence of the Social Register). They will, fortunately, forward any stamped envelops you leave with them.
