Biographical / Historical

Journalism classes at the University of Nebraska began in 1894 under the direction of Will Owen Jones, both a student and a faculty member. Miller Moore Fogg, a professor in English, directed the School of Journalism after it formed in 1923. In 1979 the School became independent of the College of Arts and Sciences and in 1985 became officially the College of Journalism. It is now known as the College of Journalism and Mass Communications.

Processing Information

In 2023, Ross Schroeder and Madison White processed the collection. When files came to the archive, some alumni biographical files were stored by individual and some were by year. Because of this , the files were condensed so that each graduating class had one folder with all its graduates. Duplicates were weeded and everything was housed in new folders. The collection was then described in a finding aid, to reflect the new arrangement.
