Conditions Governing Access


Biographical / Historical

The Other One was a small alternative newspaper created and distributed by a group of Southeastern Massachusetts University (SMU) students (Jane Belanger, George Blaisdell, James Brown, and Donald Machado, Jr.) from 1984 to 1985. It provided the student population with a medium in which to voice their concerns and express their opinions and creativity. Since this newspaper was published during the Cold War when Ronald Reagan was president, many of its articles and political cartoons have to do with the anxiety of the arms race and the students’ ideas for protests against the increased military funding. The Other One also included music reviews, recommendations for books, clubs, bars, and restaurants, as well as advertisements for social events on campus.
