    "The Davidsonian, weekly publication, is the official organ of the college and student body. It is the medium through which the news of student and alumni activity is published.
    The Davidsonian was founded by the class of 1915. It was christened 'The Livest Wire on the Hill' and ever has it lived up to the... name. In its infancy the 'little college sheet' embarked on a policy of progressive service. During the ten years of it existance it has waged an active campaign in this interest, and has been one of the potent factors in making a 'bigger and Better Davidson.'"
       - Quips & Cranks, 1924
