Grinnell's Radical Counterculture "Underground" Newspapers: How Did They Affect You? 

The Grinnell classes of 1970 and 1971 experienced two homegrown “underground” campus newspapers. The Pterodactyl appeared from the fall of 1967 through 1969 and High and Mighty appeared in the spring 1970 semester. Both had no official relationship with the college and were part of the campus counterculture and left-wing activist political scene at the time. How did these papers impact you, if at all? In this program three Grinnell alumni who worked on these papers and one alumni editor of the college’s official paper, the Scarlet and Black reflect back on these papers and relate their experiences with and current evaluation of them and their role on the campus. There will be ample opportunity for all attendees to contribute their views, memories, and evaluations.
