The Boreal Budget was likely published one time as a precursor to the class of 1898's Class Day performance, a Haverford tradition that involved each class writing and performing a show for the rest of the student body. The satirical newspaper was possibly created or edited by Joseph Howell Haines, Francis Reeves Strawbridge, Joseph Wright Taylor, and Alfred Garrett Scattergood, as these students are listed as the Class Day Committee on Arrangements.
