Title

Article "Administrators respond to 'Messenger' content"

Description

In this article, the author discusses how the fall 1991 issue of the University’s literary magazine, The Messenger, prompted University officials to consider withdrawing the magazine from the admissions office due to the use of profanity. Gerald Quigg, the Vice President of University Relations, described the magazine as “gross and demonstrating a lack of education.” Quigg claimed that he was not censoring the magazine, but did question its appropriateness and if it should continue to be published. The magazine had been removed from the admissions office and would no longer be sent to alumni, according to vice president for student affairs Leonard Goldberg. Steven Barza was the magazine's advisor, and Jeff Fowler was the editor. Though Quigg's memo did not state which material was offensive, two poems by senior Sunni McMillan were noted by the article.
