The "Neurotic Nine" Liked to Publicize

March 16, 1979

A female graduate of the class of 1965 remembers her involvement with the literary publications at Dickinson in her "Women as Leaders" survey. In addition to the Dickinsonian, she recalls another publication of a similar nature that appeared during her sophomore or junior years. It was a group known as the "neurotic nine" who wrote a parody of the daily paper. This unnamed paper was distributed on campus by boxes nailed to trees. The grad remembered having "late night meetings and then running around the next morning to replace that day's notices with our own." The best part for her though was when they all "waited and watched as the campus became alive with laughter as students picked up the paper and began to read them."
