History of The Daily Reveille
The earliest known issue of The Daily Reveille was published at Louisiana State University in 1887. The newspaper however became a permanent part of campus on Jan. 14, 1897 after the first issue of the new Reveille hit stands. For at least a short while just after 1934, The Daily Reveille earned national journalistic recognition after then-Sen. Huey Long had seven staff members expelled for reporting on something he believed should not belong in "his" newspaper. The students now are commonly refered to as The Reveille Seven and include Carl McArn Corbin, Samual A. Montague, Stanley D. Shlosman, Cal Joseph Abraham, Jesse H. Cutrer Jr., L. Rea Godbold and David R. McGuire Jr.
The publication became The Daily Reveille in 1938, only to be forced back to semiweekly status during the Second World War. It resumed daily publication again in 1947 but dropped back to four issues a week in 1951 when the Korean War caused LSU enrolment to slump to just over 5,000 students. The Daily Reveille returned to five-day-a-week publication in 2002.
The Daily Reveille boasts many prestigious alumni including E.J. Ourso, for whom LSU's College of Business Administration is named, and Robert E. Pierre, the current bureau chief at The Washington Post. The Daily Reveille's history also includes stories that have had a great impact on campus, such as the series of stories that resulted in the resignation of an LSU chancellor.
