Santa Cruz: Student Publications

By the mid-1960's, there were two student publications at Santa Cruz: a newspaper, The Pioneer, which first appeared on December 10, 1965, and Wildflowers, a nonprofit journal of student poetry first issued on January 19, 1966.

The Pioneer was "a journal of opinion published by the students of Cowell College." Subscriptions to The Pioneer were sold to students, staff, and faculty on a bi-weekly basis. The Pioneer also derived support from advertising and subscriptions from Cowell College's affiliates and from the parents of Santa Cruz students.

Wildflowers was planned to be published on an irregular schedule.
