Student-Researchers wrote about a wide range of topics during Fall 2018, including: the Coon Chicken Inn, a popular local eatery that utilized racist imagery in its advertising; the musician Carl Ravazza and his orchestra; the Linguaphone Group, which was a pioneer of language-learning technology; Auerbach’s Department Store, a family-owned business that operated for more than a century; and a 1941 talk by H. V. Kaltenborn, the “fearless correspondent, editor, and radio newscaster.”
The students also began creating a finding aid—an annotated index—of the Daily Chronicle. The student newspaper was launched as a weekly on December 16, 1892. It was then named the University Chronicle.
