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.
