Historical note

The first issue of Haverford Twopenny Press appeared on February 21, 1964. It was published once a week during the semester. Topics were "social issues" and the weekly saw itself as "non-partisan," noting "we publish articles to stimulate controversy and action, rather than to press a particular point of view." The last issue appears to be November 27, 1965; it is unclear if publication continued after that time.
