These gems from 1935 and the more than 2,000 subsequent issues of the student-run newspaper are now available online at https://archive.org/details/wartburgtrumpet. Amy Moorman, the college archivist, initiated the project in early 2017. Additional issues of the newspaper, which is now produced digitally in addition to the paper copy, will be uploaded annually.
“The Trumpet student newspaper represents one of the most comprehensive historical sources of campus activity in the archives,” Moorman said. “We felt it was important to make this resource available digitally to increase accessibility — both by having it online and for the fact that the scanned copies are keyword searchable.”
