More News From Brevard College Available

A few more issues of Brevard College‘s The Clarion have been added to our North Carolina Newspapers collection:

A political cartoon titled, "The rise and fall of man." On the left is an ape, then a caveman, then Albert Einstein (standing in front of an atomic bomb) and then, on the far right, President Bill Clinton playing the saxophone.

These issues cover several serious and political topics in addition to opinion pieces on student life and culture. Most notably, these newspapers cover the student views on former President Bill Clinton, who was elected in 1992.

In the November 10, 1992 edition, then-Assistant Editor Lorrin Wolf commented, “I want to move out of the United States because I feel that Clinton’s term will be a repeat of the Carter years.” Many of the students quoted in these issues expressed a similar sentiment.
