Digital Archive Brings NIGHT TIMES
The John F. Kennedy Memorial Library's Digital Archive Project
is pleased to present you with a piece of Cal State LA's history,
the Night Times.
This recently completed digital archive project at the University
Library makes available on the web more than 40 issues of the Night
Times-sometimes called the Night Owl-published from 1954
In 1954, armed with the GI bill, returning veterans
from the Korean conflict flooded into Los Angeles State College. As
is common today, many of these students attended classes in the evening
while working a full-time job during the day. To introduce evening
students to their classmates, activities and college life, L.A. State
College began publishing an evening newspaper called Night Times.
