The Cornell Graphic, Volume 2 Number 5
Junior Week, 1925

The Cornell Graphic was a student publication begun in 1923 and modeled after popular photographic supplements in the Sunday papers. Publication ended abruptly in 1926 when the Spring Day issue was confiscated. According to University officials, the magazine was suppressed for "showing very poor taste" in, among other things, publishing an image of a pretty coed wringing the water out of her wet dress. Eighteen students were suspended, the editor was expelled and the business manager was placed on disciplinary probation.
