 Item — Folder: UNO-0005-oversize-1

Scope and Contents

Special issue of the Gateway student newspaper of the University of Nebraska at Omaha. On July 1, 1968, the Municipal University of Omaha merged with the University of Nebraska (then referring only to the Lincoln campus) to create the University of Nebraska multi-campus system. The issue is printed tete-beche with two front pages. One "page 1" is dated June 30, 1968, and identified as The University of Omaha Gateway, with the headline, "Typical Problems, Triumphs Mark OU History." The other "page 1" is dated July 1, 1968, and identified as The University of Nebraska Gateway, with the headline, "Merger Makes NU 20th Largest University." The interior of the special issue features a two page spread of photographs and cartoons related to the merger. Although Gateway issues of that time period were normally printed on newsprint, this special issue was printed on a higher-quality thick white paper, with both black and blue ink.
