Supreme Court nominee has college media background

President Donald Trump on Tuesday selected Neil Gorsuch to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated nearly one year ago by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

Gorsuch, who has served as a federal appeals court judge since 2006, is a Columbia University graduate and its student newspaper the Columbia Spectator covered the announcement.

The story, written by Jessica Spitz and Aaron Holmes, details Gorsuch’s connection to student media. Gorsuch, who graduated from Columbia in 1988, was a columnist for the Spectator and founder of the satirical newspaper The Federalist.

The Columbia University library offers a detailed archive of the Spectator and plenty of written material from a college-aged future Supreme Court nominee.

What exactly will an interested reader find in the archives? Spectator writers Huber Gonzalez and Veronica Grace Taleon provided a recap in an article published today.

Meanwhile, The Federalist is celebrating it newfound claim to fame.
