Biographical / Historical

After The Yowl [RG 10/2.19] was retired, most of the editorial staff remained to produce Scripts N Pranks, a magazine devoted to "literature (scripts) and humor (pranks)." The first issue was produced in November of 1936. It was a quarterly magazine until the fall of 1958, when it began publishing three times a year. In the early 1940s there was a break in publication due to World War II. Early on, the editors published humor balanced with poetry, literature, and other fillers, but later Scripts N Pranks reverted its focus back to humor and satire by separately publishing the issues: only one issue was of literary nature while the others focused on humor. The last issue was published in February of 1965 because the editors felt that Scripts 'N Pranks no longer represented Davidson College. The Miscellany [RG 10/2.21], a more serious literary magazine, was begun after the Scripts N Pranks ended.
