A History of Beaver Publications

This newspaper is just the latest in a long line of Beaver publications. For your enjoyment, and as inspiration for the name contest, here is a list of past publications.

The Beaver Log
Starting in 1924, this used to be a quarterly in-house printed publication. Each spring’s issue included photos and memories of the senior class (this section evolved into the current yearbook). It included poems, short stories, school news, and artwork. In 1947 (through 1967), the Log transformed into the Log Booklets: printed three times a year, and consisted of poems, short stories, news and little artwork. As of 1947, the name The Log was strictly used for the yearbook—consisting of mainly senior material, published at the end of each academic year.
