MSUM to Honor Original Student Newspaper Staff at 50th Anniversary Reunion – InForum


MOORHEAD — Honors are coming for the original staffers of Minnesota State University’s Moorhead campus newspaper at MSUM Homecoming next month.

Fargo-Moorhead residents and others who worked at The Advocate will be recognized as part of the newspaper’s 50th anniversary reunion.

They include FM residents Jeff Burrill and Nancy Edmonds Hansen, as well as Carl Griffith, from Minneapolis; Barbara LaValeur, of Edina, Minnesota; and BA Schoen, of Baldwin, New York, according to a press release.

The Advocate was not the first, but is now the oldest newspaper on the MSUM campus. It followed MiSTiC, founded in 1925 and named after what was then Moorhead State Teachers College.

Coverage of the Vietnam War, among other things, led to the closure of The MiSTiC in 1969. This was followed by an attempt by an underground newspaper, The Mystic, which was hit by financial uncertainty.

The lawyer was born on September 23, 1971.

The original staff members will be recognized at a program on Saturday, October 8 at 4 p.m. in Room 105 of the Comstock Memorial Union.

Information regarding other meeting events and how to register can be found on the meeting website

or by searching Facebook for The Advocate 50+ Anniversary Reunion.

All original staff of the lawyer and friends of the lawyer are invited to participate.

All events are free, but reservations are appreciated.
