Historical Note

The first student publication at Bates was the annual photo book, which became The Mirror by 1900. These photo books began appearing in 1870. The first publication reflecting student life and other activities on campus was the Bates Student, beginning in 1873. Thereafter the number of student publications waxed and waned with student interest, and the activities and interests of various campus student groups.

Scope and Content Note

This collection contains bound and unbound copies of student publications, including those published by the college or by students or student groups. Included are newspapers and news magazines, fiction and poetry journals, humor magazines, and items from various groups, clubs, and other organizations. These records do not include those of the Bates Publishing Association, which can be found in collection CA 12.02, Student Organizations.

 CA1203/02 Bates Student 1873-[ongoing]   77.0 oversize boxes

Scope and Content Note

Contains issues of the Bates Student, the campus newspaper. First published in 1873, the Student more closely resembled a literary magazine -- with campus news sprinkled throughout -- in both size and format, than a traditional newspaper. It was not until 1921 that the format changed to its current mode, even though the size, content, and rate of publication has changed through the years. The issues are arranged chronologically, and some runs of issues are incomplete. The various incarnations of Bates Student spoof issues are also contained in this series. In addition, the Bates Student was published in two parts between 1916 and 1920 -- a Newspaper Section and a Magazine Section. (The Magazine Section grew into the Garnet thereafter.) Bound copies of the Bates Student can also be found in the Archives Reading Room.

Also included is an accounts ledger from 1931-1934, detailing expenditures and incoming monies for The Bates Student.

 CA1203/03 The Garnet 1879, 1890, 1922-[ongoing]   5.0 manuscript boxes

Scope and Content Note

The Garnet has been the student literary magazine of Bates College since 1922, having been continuously published since then. Also found in this series are two one-off publications with the same title, published in 1879 and 1890. These two items were not literary magazines like the current "Garnet," but were more like yearbooks, with material geared more to entertainment and humor.
