Celebrating One-hundred Years of The Pine/The Lumberjack Newspaper


The Pine/The Lumberjack Newspaper

Official publication of the Associated Students of Northern Arizona Normal School (original name of Northern Arizona University), The Pine was first published a few weeks after the beginning of fall semester 1914 with the support and encouragement of college president, Dr. Rudolph H.H. Blome. Initially published bi-weekly, the newspaper alternated between a monthly, weekly, and semi-weekly publication over the years. In 1946, by a vote of the student body, the name of the student newspaper formally changed to The Lumberjack. The design of the newspaper’s masthead has gone through several iterations.

During the course of this project, the library discovered a few missing issues of the student newspaper. If you know the location of any missing issues, please contact Special Collections and Archives (special.collections@nau.edu).
