Biographical Note

The Varsity Voice: A Weekly Journal of College Life was established in 1907 through joint efforts of the University Athletics Department and the Young Men's Christian Association (Y.M.C.A.). The Voice"will be a journal of college life, containing athletic news, locals from the campus, and town, editorials, and other matter of interest to the sons and daughters of 'Ole Miss' both on and away from campus" (v.1 n.1, 1 June 1907).

The University Record was established in 1898 as one of the three main University of Mississippi student periodicals. According to the 17 May 1902 issue (v.4 n.27), The University Record"is primarily for the local happenings at the Varsity and is considered the official organ of the Athletic Association." Published each Wednesday, the Record also included student news and commentary on school spirit.
