Biographical / Historical
Over the years many attempts have been made to record some history of the University of Denver school newspapers. However there always seems to be some discrepancy as to exact dates and names. As time has passed pieces of the history have been lost and speculation has replaced fact. That said, it is known for sure that the very first paper published at the University of Denver was the Weekly Peanut in 1882. Only four issues were ever put out and they were all done by hand. Following the Weekly Peanut the Hesperus appeared in approximately 1886 and was around until the advent of the Bulletin (sometime in the 1890's) , which came out as a rival causing the Hesperus to go under. In 1899 the name of the Bulletin was changed to the Denver University Clarion, which it has been known as since then.
