About this collection

The Emery Weal: March 18, 1926. The first issue of the Emery Weal newspaper, or magazine as it was called then, showed up as a four-page bulletin highlighting the school’s events. One copy was printed and passed around. When this proved impractical, the Weal was printed as a tabloid and sold for five cents.

 

The Weal – the second oldest college newspaper in Alberta – has gone through a series of changes. It was a stenciled legal-sized typewritten news-sheet in the ‘30s and ‘40s, a smaller typeset newspaper in the ‘50s and ‘60s, and returned to tabloid size in the ‘70s. In 1984, the SAIT Students’ Association hired a non-student editor and formed an umbrella department to house all publications produced by SAITSA. In 2000, the newspaper started using an abbreviated moniker; now “the Weal.”
