Timeline Traces First 100 Years of Missouri’s School of Journalism

A new, interesting, Webtastic timeline traces the first 100 years of the country’s first School of Journalism at the University of Missouri. The timeline touches upon the technological growth of the school, its related publications, and the place of both amid the backdrop of various eras and the big scoops and scandals that defined them (such as The Great Depression, JFK Assassination, and Watergate).

As I have previously blogged about, my favorite inane bit of Missouri j-school trivia is the contents featured in the first issue of The University Missourian (now The Columbia Missourian). As The St. Louis Post-Dispatch recently reported, “That first issue . . . included stories about a woman who was suing a farmer for breaking an engagement and about a surgery to graft a rabbit’s eye onto a man.” Ouch.
