Biographical / Historical

College Press Service began as the news agency of the United States Student Press Association (USSPA), a national organization of campus newspapers and editors active in the 1960s.. When USSPA suffered financial setbacks in the early 1970s, CPS was spun off and became a progressive alternative news collective in Denver, Colorado. It, too, later folded, selling its name to the commercial enterprise, and distributing the funds to progressive groups in Denver. In the mid 1970s, radical staff members of CPS split off from the United States Student Press Association and established Liberation News Service (LNS).
