The Dial Magazine

The Dial was a termly printed magazine, spanning nearly a half-century of student life and thought, from 1906 to 1953.

Although there were occasional articles contributed by Fellows (and even a President), the writing, editing, and production, was student-led, with a Fellow as Censor. The intended readers were the current students and recent alumni. The original title of the magazine was The Queens’ Courier, which was changed to The Dial for the third edition onwards.

For the avoidance of doubt, this college magazine called The Dial has no connection with a magazine published in the U.S.A. also known as The Dial, which has its own archive.

This page represents the results of a work-in-progress to digitize, to high quality, the entire series. The intention is that each edition should be in Searchable-PDF format, with the original content having been subject to Optical Character Recognition. Initially, only a few editions have been completed and posted here: those posted have their title below in italics. More will follow in due course.

Disclaimer: These magazines are reproduced here as a historical record of what was written and published at the period in question. The opinions expressed are those of the individual authors in those times. Readers should not infer any support for those historical opinions by the present college.
