Scarab was the first Blanchester High School Yearbook published since 1925. This period was during the Great Depression which may explain why no yearbooks were published during those years.

This yearbook was an unusual one. Instead of being printed like previous and subsequent ones, this yearbook is essentially a scrapbook. The pages are single pages three-hole punched and assembled into a folder with clasps. All the photos are actual photos pasted into the book.
