History of Rhodes Magazine

In 1928 Dr. Marion L. MacQueen, professor of Mathematics, established and edited The Southwestern Alumni Magazine. The booklet, which was published quarterly, contained feature articles, campus news and alumni news. In 1939 the name was changed to the Southwestern News and came out in newsletter form until 1968. From 1969-75 the publication was a black-and-white magazine. From 1975-93 it was a tabloid newspaper called Southwestern Today, then in 1984, Rhodes College Today when the college changed its name. The current Rhodes magazine, established in 1994, follows the format of its predecessors with two differences: Color is used throughout and it has the shortest name in college history.
