A Short Historical Sketch of U. of
As the star of our College Journal-
ism is now approaching the ascend-
ent, it seems right to stop and see
through what paths our course has
been traced. The University, as we
know, was started in 1837, but the
student journalistic life lay slumber-
ing till about twenty years afterward
when the "Phosnix" appeared. This
scion of literary thought existed for
just one number, and its editorial
board was composed of a single
During the same year we had an-
other paper: the "University Reg-
ister." It was like the "Phomnix"
in the number of editions.published,
but the board was enlarged by the
addition of another editor. Before
these, however, in 1853 two numbers
of a magazine were published under
the auspices of the University, but
in Detroit, and not by the students.
As this does not concern the student's
journalism, further mention of it is
The "University Palladium" was
issued as an annual in 1858, but not
in 1859. The advent of the second
volume in 186o, marked the begin-
ning of the series which has con-
tinued till the present time. The
volume was brought out bythe secret
societies and at first contained noth-
ing more than a list of the societies
together with the other college or-
ganizations and a list of the faculty
and students. Vol. II had twenty-
four not very large pages. Literary
features gradually came in and are
now one of the most important and
valuable portions of the publication.
The volume published in '84 was
the first to adopt the simple name
"Palladium." In 1861 four num-
bers of a paper called the "Uni-
versity Independent" appeared and
existed the next year as "The Uni-
versity Independent." The editors
were chosen from the Literary So-
ciety which flourished at that time.
In 1865 the Independents, as ap-
peared to the Secret Society, con-
cluded to publish a volume of their
own. Six editors were chosen and
the volume was printed. It had
fifty or sixty pages, containing lists
of the faculty, students and college
organizations; and also a few short
prose articles. The "Castalian,'' as
they named their publication, did
not live long, for the number of
1869-'70 closed its short existence.
In 1867 another short-lived publi-
cation, called "The Michigan Uni-
versity Magazine" was started.
This time it was a real monthly
magazine containing about forty-
three pages of reading matter. It
was devoted to "College Literature
and Education," and was published
by the students. The edition began
with June 1867 and stopped June
The history of the "Oracle,"
which is and always has been pub-
lished by the Sophomore class, is
very interesting. The first number
came out March 9, 1867. It was an
eight page, three column sheet, and
had a board of five editors. Its
motto was: "I am Sir Oracle, and
when I open my lips, let no dog
bark." The paper was purely liter-
ary in character. and contained both
prose and verse. In 1873 the maga-
zine form was adopted and this
volume with its forty-two pages of
reading matter is a very creditable
little volume. The first Soph. class
list was printed in the magazine in
'83; '88 omitted the motto and thus
the form as at present used, was
