This collection consists of issues of The Rice Thresher from its early days in 1916 until Spring 2021.
In 1915, students, with the encouragement of Pres. Edgar Odell Lovett, began in earnest to start a student newspaper. The first issue appeared on January 15, 1916. The students have consistently written and physically printed the Thresher, except for the latter half of spring 2020, when the Covid-19 virus forced the paper to be digital-only.
