New issues from The Salemite have been added to DigitalNC. The Salemite is the Salem College Student Newspaper, continuously published under that name since 1920. Salem College was founded in 1772 in Winston-Salem and is one of the oldest women’s colleges in the United States. The newly digitized issues are from 1970 through 1978. They focus on student life, events, athletics, arts, clubs, announcements, and news. In the image above, students were arrested for conducting a social experiment to see how the school’s administration would react to a riot.

You can view all of the digitized issues of the Salem College Student Newspaper, from 1920 to 1990. View more from Salem College here, and learn more about the school on their website.
