A paper written by seniors Allie Hitchcock and Sara Miller was accepted for presentation at the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication/American Journalism Historians Association joint conference

Their paper, “A Torrent Suspended in Midstream: The Short Life and Long Death of McClure’s Magazine,” started as a project in associate professor Mike Conway’s J450: History of Journalism class. It relies heavily upon primary documents accessed at the Lilly Library on campus.
