Guide to Williams Undergraduate Publications

This guide has been assembled to facilitate information retrieval from student publications in the Archives' collections. Publications are grouped first by subject matter, then by publication date. As the chronological list suggests, many papers grew out of the ashes (or limited memberships lists) of others. A change of name, therefore, does not necessarily indicate a significant change in content. Occasionally, however, a paper appeared with the same name as a defunct publication but contained a very different kind of information (literary rather than factual, for example). The history of the Williams Weekly provides a good example of such a metamorphosis. To help clarify these convolutions, the chronological list contains further details about the publications: specifically the editors' statement of purpose and, in some cases, a discussion of content.
