The College of William & Mary’s Flat Hat was usually published each Friday during the academic year. On November 22, 1963, the day John F. Kennedy was shot, the paper (printed just prior to that date) covered the election of twenty-one students to the Alpha Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, a proposed $5 social fee, the opening of bidding for the construction of Swem Library, the upcoming basketball season and the candidacy of Barry Goldwater for the Republican nomination for president.
The Special Collections Research Center in Swem Library is in search of issues of College of William and Mary newspapers and magazines to complete our collection. Can you help us? We may not be precisely desperate, but the title of a Monroe Project submitted to the W&M Digital Archive yesterday has movies of the 1980s on the brain.
