The pictorial history, Loyal Sons and Daughters, says the earliest publication was The Clarion, which was published for one year—from 1914-'15. The second publication was The Crater Scroll, which also lasted one year—from 1924-'25. The third publication, The Campus Review, saw print from 1929-'30. Finally, The Virginia Statesman then appeared to fill the void for the campus community. It is published during the fall and spring semesters by a handful of mass communications students.
Loyal Sons and Daughters, published in 1991, is on reserve at the Johnston Library.
