Tar Heel Ink

Student Publications 1844-2005

Editors of the Daily Tar HeelMany student publications have come and gone during the long history of the University of North Carolina. These imprints, whether short-lived or long-standing, have served as platforms for young writers and as training grounds for aspiring editors, photographers, and illustrators. Historically, no other student activity has reached and regularly served more of the campus community than student-based publications. The eyewitness accounts of university events, assorted political commentary, poetry, and pictures preserved on their pages embody 161 of the 210 years that UNC has been open to students.

This website is a condensed version of an exhibit that appeared in the North Carolina Collection Gallery from February 24 to June 3, 2005.

All publications shown here are part of the North Carolina Collection. These and other student publications can be found in the library's catalog. They can be requested and viewed in the Wilson Special Collections Library.
