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.

Scope and Content:

The publications were written by students in Journalism classes such as creative editing, documentary photography, magazine editing, photo journalism and visual communications or as summer internships. They are broadly identified as experimental newspapers, photo projects, and magazines. For example, the photo projects were developed through documentary photography classes under the direction of George Tuck, photography and graphics professor. The publication Ourselves includes photos exhibited by students at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and students of Gottfried Jaeger at Fachhochschule Bielefeld in Bielefeld, Germany. Other topics include military draft, moon landing, student protests and strikes, and topics related to campus and student life.
