St. Edward’s University Newspaper Collection

The St. Edward’s University newspaper fills a gap about Austin-based Catholic schools and the Catholic community in Central Texas from 1881 through the early 1920s, when very few papers provided Catholic news from across the state and country. Other papers published at St. Edward’s University include The Cadet and The Echo. The Cadet was the newspaper published by the St. Edward’s Military Academy during its operation from 1943-1946. The St. Edward’s High School was the only Catholic High School in Austin until 1966. The Echo was the student-run newspaper for the high school. It provides information about student life, sports, and campus announcements centered solely on the high school community.
