Amazon.com description: Product Description: Through nearly 200 previously unavailable front pages from The Stanford Daily student newspaper, 100 YEARS OF HEADLINES tells a rich, vibrant story of Big Games, wars, student protests, Nobel prizes, NCAA championships, construction, university politics, and other events both major and minor that have shaped campus life.

Handsomely produced, this large format, hardcover book contains over a century of Stanford Daily front pages (most of which haven't been seen since they were first published). Each front page has been digitally imaged from the original bound volumes in the University's archives and is presented in its entirely, exactly as it ran. Organized chronologically, each page includes all the headlines, stories, photos, weather reports, ads, and that made up the day's news.

No other publication can match the impact and immediacy of The Daily's front page. Through headlines, articles, and photographs, these pages provide a "rough draft" of history as it occurred. Told from a student's point of view, The Daily's coverage is straightforward and exciting.
