The Williams Record

The Williams College newspaper was renamed from the Williams Weekly when the editors decided to publish the serial as a semi-weekly; thus the Williams Weekly issues nominally form vols. 1-17 of the Williams Record. From February, 1970 to February, 1972, Williams College had two student newspapers, the Williams Record and the Williams Advocate. The Record merged with the Williams Advocate to form the Record Advocate in 1972. The paper re-emerged as the Williams Record in 1975.
