Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s (D) medical school, Eastern Virginia Medical School, banned yearbooks in 2013 after the inclusion of photos showing students dressed like Confederate soldiers, according to a Monday Washington Post report. 

The administration made that move nearly 30 years after the publication of the yearbook which includes photos of men dressed in blackface and a Ku Klux Klan robe on Northam’s page.

Provost Richard Homan said that the yearbooks had been produced with very minimal faculty oversight, and that he regrets not conducting an audit of past yearbooks after imposing the ban.
