Wayne State Alumni Publications For Development And Alumni Office

This was a request from the WSU Alumni and Development Office that had them asking whether or not there was a difference between the two alumni publications, the Wayne State Alumni News and the Wayne State magazine. The text of the request is adjoining.

Hi Hannah -

Most happy to help!

I'm digging deep into the Sesquicentennial and I'm sure we'll be talking more in the coming year, which is great.

I looked into whether or not the Wayne State University Alumni News and Wayne State: The Alumni Magazine of Wayne State University are in effect - arguably - the same publication.

Yet different...

Here's the difference:

- Wayne State University Alumni News was - through its run of 1941 to 1997 - a quarterly, and then sometimes bimonthly publication (its frequency in publication seems to vary through the years). Its format was literally a newspaper, with volume and issue numbers.

- The first edition of Wayne State: The Alumni Magazine of Wayne State University began in Spring of 1997 - also published in volumes. But its format is what we now have in its current iteration: a glossy magazine.

I'm very happy to assist further.

And as Kristen notes you're more than welcome to come to Reuther's Reading Room during our open hours to access these titles.

My Best!

Hi Hannah,

Our issues of Wayne State: The Alumni Magazine of Wayne State University are located in the Reading Room. You do not need an appointment to view those - please feel free to come in at your convenience during the Reading Room's open hours.

As far as the two titles and whether they are the same publication, I'm going to let our new University Archivist, Alison Stankrauff, dig into that. I've copied her on this email.

Thanks,
Kristen

Hi Kristen,

I was hoping to look at some of the older Wayne State magazines, or Wayne State Alumni Magazines for story ideas to share for Wayne State's 150th. I think the publications are the same thing, but just switched names at one point? If they are different, then I would like to look at the Wayne State Alumni Magazines.

I don't need to look at them in any particular order, though I have read through a lot from the 70s, so I was hoping I could look at ones from the 50s, 60s, 80s or 90s. However, I'm not sure of their box numbers. Do I need to know a specific box number to schedule time in the reading room to look at alumni magazines?

Sincerely,

Hannah Orlicki

Hi Hannah,

The boxes will be on hold for you for the entire day, so whenever you can make it in! I'm on desk until 12:00 today, but the archivist on duty after that will be able to assist you.

I did indeed go to the game and the staff had a great time. 😊

Hi Kristen,

I have had something come up early tomorrow morning. I think I can still make the appointment on time, but just to be safe, would I be able to push it an hour, to noon?

Also, I visited the Reuther this morning, and if you went to the baseball game, I hope you are having a great time!

Sincerely,

Hannah Orlicki

Hi Hannah,

No, you are all set. I've added you to our research calendar and will pull those four boxes. I'll have you fill out the registration form Friday morning when you arrive.

Thanks!

Hi Kristen,

It's Hannah Orlicki, from the 150th research team, working with Ray and Meghan. I was hoping to visit the Reuther to examine some boxes from the Alumni Relations: Alumni Giving Council collection:

http://reuther.wayne.edu/files/WSR000369.pdf

Particularly, boxes 1 - 4. Can I schedule a time to look at their contents?

Sincerely,

Hannah Orlicki
