The first issue of the Westtown school newspaper The Brown & White was published on October 2nd , 1914. Taking the place of the “School and Campus” column in the alumni magazine The Westonian , the student editors hoped that this “experiment” would draw the interest of the whole student body, insuring the ongoing life of the paper. They also hoped to capture the atmosphere at Westtown, so that those who had left the school – former teachers and students – could have the pleasure of re-experiencing Westtown life in heart and mind. The paper has been published continuously since 1914.
