The publication of college news magazines began with the College Literary Societies. These early publications included information on students, alumni, and sports, and often chronicled big campus events including commencements, groundbreakings, and the opening of new campus buildings. However, the main purpose of the publications was to highlight poetry and prose, poets and authors, and literary society meetings and contests.
In the 1880s, the literary societies joined together and published one magazine: The College Monthly. The magazine included news about students, alumni, and faculty, and published souvenir issues for several of the Western Maryland College commencements.
The WMC Monthly is currently in the process of being scanned. Issues of the WMC Monthly will be made available to the Archives website as they are completed. All copies of the publication in hard copy are available to be viewed in the McDaniel College Archives; please contact the Archivist to arrange an appointment.
