To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, our office has created an archive of historic Observer articles. Honoring the first Earth Day in 1970, our campus held a "Teach-In" with a number of speakers which was featured in the student paper.
Additionally, honoring the first Earth Day, the Observer put together a special edition of the newspaper, a supplement with a sole focus on the environment. Download this supplement and other articles below.
