Thank you for your outreach to the Moorland-Spingarn Research Center. Howard University has transitioned to an online and remote instruction format for the remainder of the semester. Additionally, faculty and staff, including Moorland-Spingarn and Founders’ Library, have been directed to telework in order to de-densify the campus. For the foreseeable future, we will not be open to the public.

The Academy Herald

The Howard University Academy Herald

The Academy Herald.

The Academy Herald was a monthly magazine published by the students of the Howard University Academy. The aim of the magazine was to publish general university news and life at the Academy. The Academy was established by the trustees of the University to provide instruction necessary for the adequate preparation of students for the “College of Liberal Arts.” Its curriculum was designed to meet not only those whose aim was college preparation but also of those who sought a general high school education, or who wanted to enter professional study. Students were provided courses in History, English, Latin, Greek, Physiography, physics and other Liberal arts courses.

The Dentoscope

Welcome to The Dentoscope.

The Dentoscope was a semi-monthly publication produced by the Howard University College of Dentistry. Included within its pages are a wide range of topics including socialized dentistry, discussions of the developments of dental techniques, race and dentistry and news from the College’s faculty. There is also a history of the College of Dentistry. Each issue contains a section entitled “Who’s Who Among Our Faculty”, which features a photograph and a biographical sketch of several faculty members from the college. They also contain a section called “Here or There”, where the students would comment on a wide range of dental related topics including commentary and news from around the nation. The progress of College of Dentistry alumni is also featured in the section “Gleanings from Our Alumni” which presented the accomplishments of the alumni during a given period.

The Howard University Record


The HOWARD UNIVERSITY RECORD was the official organ of Howard University. It took the place of the UNIVERSITY STANDARD which for some years has rendered valuable service. The RECORD was issued four times during the scholastic year and will be the medium of communication between the University and its alumni, patrons and friends. It was a magazine of facts, representing the life and work of the institution, rather than a journal of academic discussion. On occasion issues were enlarged and issued monthly, and took on more of the character of an educational review, devoted to the scholarly discussion of those educational principles, methods and ideals for which Howard University and kindred institutions especially stand.
