Scope and Content Note

(A83-34; various)
This Sub-Group contains issues of the University of Missouri student newspaper known as the MSU Independent (1897-1909). This student-oriented publication was produced by the Missouri Student Union and featured articles and editorials on topics relating to student life and activities, including athletics, the YMCA and YWCA, and debate; as well academics, administration, faculty, alumni, speakers, and the town of Columbia.

Historical Note:

The history of the M.S.U. Independent begins in late February, 1894 as members of the anti-fraternity organization, the "M.S.U. Barb," decided during the same month as the group's creation, to fill the need that they saw for a new biweekly newspaper on campus. Two other newspapers existed at Missouri State University at the time. "The Argus" was a monthy magazine published by the literary societies. "The Tiger" was a weekly newspaper published by the fraternities. The new publication's first editor, Albert J. McCulloch suggested its name. The first issue arrived on March 3, 1894, containing four pages. Only seven issues were published during that first year, with illustrations beginning in the fifth issue. The 1894-1895 school year saw the publication of 17 more issues. By the following year, both "The Argus" and "The Tiger" had ceased publication. The final issue of the Independent was published on May 22, 1910.
