Historical Note

Since 1919, students at Northern Michigan University have published a series of newspapers: The Northern Normal News (1919-1927); The Northern College News (1927-1955); The Northern News (1955-1972). Problems developed between the Northern News and the University administration, with accusations of administration attempts to censor or control the paper's news coverage. As a result, the students created the school's first independent newspaper, The North Wind. The first edition was published on September 14, 1972, and continues to the present day. Cate Terwilliger, an Associate Professor in the Department of English at NMU, serves as the faculty adviser for the paper. For a complete list of editors since 1919, please see "A Sense of Time: the Encyclopedia of Northern Michigan University."

Scope and Contents Note

This collection documents the administration of The North Wind, the student newspaper at Northern Michigan University. The records document the official meetings of the The North Wind's Board of Directors and include minutes, agendas, membership lists, correspondence, and supporting documentation presented to the Board.

Two accessions to the collection maintain a record of all ads placed in the newspaper. The series includes clipped and mounted copies of each advertisement. The record series is arranged alphabetically by business: on campus, local off-campus, and national.

One accession documents job applications for open positions and provides insight into the hiring process. This record series consists entirely of the PDF application form.

Finally, the accession of photographs predominately document student activities and campus scenes.
