The Journal of the Experimental College and the Ten O'Clock Scholar
Ten O'Clock Scholar Staff Meeting, 1973
A portion of the EC experience that left a more permanent, physical record is the EC's official journal. Known as the Journal of the Experimental College for its first two years and as the Ten O’Clock Scholar for the final two years, this journal served as the voice of the EC. It was developed as a quasi-scholarly publication which introduced the ideas of the day into discourse and encouraged dialogue.
The EC journal was at first dominated by faculty authors and academic matters, but eventually morphed into a much more free-wheeling sounding board dominated by student voices. Student comments on pressing issues within the Ten O’Clock Scholar were echoed in the campus newspaper, the Red & Green, with which it shared many staff members. From 1973 to 1975, both the Ten O’Clock Scholar and the Red & Green were more liberal than the average MSC student, encouraged student involvement, and pushed back at norms of the day.
