A student periodical founded by John W. Wayland, a member of the Philomathean Literary Society. The magazine sought to stimulate literary activity among the students "by affording them an open door to practical journalism," and to serve as a medium for the expression and preservation of "the best thoughts" of society members and for "the cultivation of a chaste and graceful literary style"; also to develop greater interest among the alumni in their alma mater and to strengthen the bonds of friendship among them. - Bridgewater College: The First Hundred Years, 1880-1980
