More Issues of the Greensboro Student Newspaper Added to DigitalNC

Masthead for "High Life".

High Life, October 4, 1957.

A gap in newspaper issues available from Greensboro, N.C. has now been filled thanks to our partners at the Greensboro History Museum. Close to 200 new issues of the Greensboro high school student newspaper, High Life, are ready to view online. These additions fill in years ranging from 1927 to 1958.

While High Life published sporadically, normally on every other Friday during the school year, they wrote substantial articles, creating a creditable newspaper that continued year to year. Besides commenting on student life, such as appointments of Homecoming Queens and awarding of senior superlatives, High Life also documented staff appointments, sports headlines, and goings on about town. They also made space for creative endeavors, like drawings and poems.
