The Observer Archives
Founded in 1981, The Observer is the award-winning student newspaper of Fordham University. Based at Fordham University’s Lincoln Center Campus in Manhattan, The Observer’s circulation also reaches Fordham’s Rose Hill Campus in the Bronx, making it available to all the students in the University’s undergraduate colleges and graduate schools.It is Lincoln Center’s fourth paper. The first was “The Curved Horn”, originally the newspaper of the Undergraduate School of Education at 302 Broadway that transferred to LC when that campus opened in 1968. Two other papers, “The Review” and “Evex” were started up. By 1981, all three papers had folded and the school was ready for a voice for students and “The Observer” was born.

The Maroon Yearbook is the yearbook of Fordham College, Rose Hill. Starting in 1916, the yearbook has consistently been published except for 1918 and 1945, when World Wars interrupted publication. The other schools had their own yearbooks but in 1941, in honor of the centennial of the university, all schools were represented in The Centurion. This special 400 page yearbook contains a wealth of early Bronx history and the college's beginnings.
The library has digitized The Maroon through 1941. Future plans include adding the other school yearbooks and bringing The Maroon up to date.
