Normalia, St. Cloud State's first newspaper, now available on the Web
Tuesday, March 22, 2011
An all-but-forgotten period of St. Cloud State University’s history has been resurrected through a collection of documents published on the Web on March 1 by the St. Cloud State University Archives.
All 93 issues of “The Normalia,” St. Cloud State’s first newspaper, are now publicly available and keyword searchable online, through the Minnesota Reflections website and on the St. Cloud State University Archives finding aid. They provide readers a glimpse into life on campus and in St. Cloud from April 1892 to May 1904 through historical articles, photos and local business advertisements. Little information about the university has survived from this 12-year period, making “The Normalia” a valuable resource.
This project was funded in part by a grant from the Minnesota Historical Society, through its Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund award, which came from the state’s Clean Water, Land and Legacy amendment fund. It was made possible by Learning Resources & Technology Services and the Minnesota Digital Library Coalition.
