Pacific University Student Early Manuscript Serials

 Collection
Identifier: MS-71

Scope and Contents

This collection contains handwritten serial publications created by the students of Pacific University and Tualatin Academy. It is not clear how (or how much) they circulated. They look like a printed format of a publication. Most of the articles have to do with do with morals and values, such as happiness and temperance, as well as subjects of general interest to the student writers. Some examples of these interests include astrology, arts, education, and current events. A few of the editorials touch on student life at Pacific University and Tualatin Academy, but are very spare in detail.
