It’s the week of Halloween and there’s no better time to highlight some items from our University Archives collections, specifically the Baylor Roundup (our campus yearbook) and The Phoenix (a literary magazine sponsored by the English Department). First up, a poem called Halloween from the 1902 Roundup.
From the 1950 Roundup
A short story from the 1981 Phoenix titled Autumn
In the 1981 Roundup, there were basically a ton of Morks and Richard Nixon together in a crowd. Seems legit.
In 1993, kids got in on the act
Two cats and a vampire (?), 1996
And lastly, if it’s 1998, it’s a guy in a “ghost face killer mask” from Scream
There’s a lot more instances of the word “Halloween” in the University Archives (639 to be exact) to explore. Happy Halloween from all of us at the DPG!
