Collegian (Vol. 1, No. 1)
Number of Pages: 
March 1849

The first issue of the Collegian, Dickinson College's first monthly literary publication. Includes "Nationality," "Machine for Grinding Poetry," "Love in College," "Translation of Cleanthe's Hymn to Jupiter," and "The Spartan Youth."

The Belles Lettres and Union Philosophical Societies created a joint editorial committee to manage this new publication. Although it only produced a handful of editions in 1849, the magazine demonstrates the talent student writers had for turning out a truly amazing publication for the College.
