For the Record

According to the inaugural issue, For the Record had one purpose — “to inform our friends and patrons of all that concerns Rosary College: interesting campus events, plans for the future, the successes of our graduates, and even the occasional set-backs which occur in the history of any institution.” Issues appeared at “irregular intervals as the need of communicating information arises.” Publication began in February of 1957.

We currently have the following issues:

  • 1957, February — 1964, July

It is unknown whether there are any missing issues, or if publication continued after July of 1964.
