Vol. 1, no. 5 (Fall 1969)



The Sheet was Justin Morrill College's local newsletter. It was composed and printed in the basement of Snyder Hall, then distributed.

Anne Zholyn has preserved a specimen of a 6-page edition issued sometime during the fall quarter of 1969, and she has kindly sent in scanned images of the pages. Thanks, Anne!

No exact publication date is given. This edition refers to a past publication in September 1969, and it mentions upcoming advance registration activites in November. Sometime in October 1969 would seem to be a reasonable estimate for its issuance date.

The outline below traces the contents of the issue. The hot links offered will take you to the JPEG image files for the individual pages.

Each of the JPEG images of the pages is from 96 to 150 kilobytes in size, so please be patient in downloading them.

If anyone has additional 'hard-core' data on JMC, its operations, its performance, or its outcomes, please Contact the Editor.

This page contains three pieces of poetry, one of which is attributed to Kathleen O'Connor. It's not clear whether or not the other two are hers as well.
