A weekly student newspaper during the academic year, The Tech News was first published in September 1909, succeeding The WPI. The Tech News was published until February 1973. It was succeeded by the WPI student publication Newspeak.
Digital issues of The Tech News are captured from microfilm of bound volumes held by WPI's Curation, Preservation, and Archives. Although the issues are full-text searchable, results are incomplete due to the microfilm's image quality and uncorrected OCR errors. Researchers are encouraged to browse full issues to better explore people, topics, and events covered.
