The California Student [Three issues: June 1907, September 1907, March 1908]

Lordsburg, CA: Lordsburg College, 1907-08.

First Edition. Three issues, Vol. each 16 pp, in original stapled wrappers. Some toning and handling wear; overall very good. This short-lived periodical was published by Lordsburg College, which was located in eastern Los Angeles County and founded in 1891 by members of the Church of the Brethren. (In 1917, the community of Lordsburg changed its name to La Verne, and the college quickly followed suit. It still exists today as the University of La Verne). The California Student promoted the school ("our commercial graduates were placed with the best firms in Pomona within 48 hours of their graduation"), offered news of student activities and alumni accomplishments, and also carried stories of general interest on California. These issues include articles on California Indians, the Big Trees of Mariposa, and summer flowers of the Sierras. There are also several pages of local advertising in each issue, primarily for businesses in Pomona and Los Angeles. We found no record of this publication in OCLC.
