History of The Daily Reveille


The earliest known issue of The Daily Reveille was published at Louisiana State University in 1887. The newspaper became a permanent part of campus on Jan. 14, 1897. In 1934, The Daily Reveille earned national journalistic recognition after then-Sen. Huey Long had seven staff members expelled for reporting on something he believed should not belong in "his" newspaper. The students now are commonly refered to as The Reveille Seven and include Carl McArn Corbin, Samual A. Montague, Stanley D. Shlosman, Cal Joseph Abraham, Jesse H. Cutrer Jr., L. Rea Godbold and David R. McGuire Jr.

The publication became The Daily Reveille in 1938, only to be forced back to semiweekly status during the Second World War. It resumed daily publication again in 1947 but dropped back to four issues a week in 1951 when the Korean War caused LSU enrollment to slump to just over 5,000 students. The Daily Reveille returned to five-day-a-week publication in 2002. In 2017, The Daily Reveille became a weekly print publication with content posted online daily at www.LSUReveille.com.
