Dickinsonian Newspaper

Dickinsonian, September 27, 1928

The Dickinsonian begins its 56th year of publication, noting its roots as a literary magazine under the Belles Lettres and Union Philosophical Literary societies.  Mervin Grant Filler is elected 18th president of the college, filling the vacancy of the newly resigned Dr. James Henry Morgan, while Professor Montgomery Porter Sellers takes deanship.  William Trickett, who served as Dean of the Law School for 38 years, dies of influenza.  Metzger Hall is modernized, both inside and out.  The football team prepares to start their season with scrimmages on Biddle Field.

Also, John Gordon Ramsden becomes Dickinson's only "foreign" student when his home address is changed to Acton, Ontario, where he spent his summer.  Many others toured the British Isles, mainland Europe, or the western United States during their summer vacation.
