From the March Issue of SPJ Report
3/5/2002


GREENCASTLE, Ind. – DePauw University’s student newspaper, The DePauw, will celebrate its 150th year with an anniversary celebration on April 5-6.

Highlights of the event will include a keynote address by Robert Giles, a 1955 DePauw graduate and president of The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University; a series of small symposia on topics related to the media; and a gathering of past and present staffers of the student newspaper.

The DePauw spawned the careers of the men, including Eugene C. Pulliam, who founded the Society of Professional Journalists at the DePauw University campus. SPJ was at that time an honorary journalism fraternity called Sigma Delta Chi.

For more information on this event, contact Ken Owen, director of media relations at DePauw, at 765/658-4634.
