Biographical / Historical

The two largest series in the collection are the Rambler and the Cornelian.

The student newspaper, The Rambler, was first published in 1931 on a weekly basis during the school year, taking a hiatus during the summer months. While the publication has no official end date, nor can be said to no longer exist, it has not been published since 2011.

Topics covered by the newspaper were current events and student activitives on campus, which provided a local context to larger world events, such as World War II, the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights Movement and the Septmeber 11 Terrorist Attacks.

The Cornelian, first published in 1939, was the student yearbook. Each year, members of the senior class were photographed individually and featured along with information about their majors and campus activities. Also featured in the Cornelian were group photos of underclass-women, clubs and sports, as well as facutly and staff photographs. Due to the rise in use of social media and other online platforms to share photographs among students, 2010 marked the final year of the Cornelian's publication.
