The Echo, Spring 1955
In May of 1955, some Furman faculty and administrators confiscated and destroyed all 1,500 copies of this issue of The Echo, Furman's student literary magazine. Unbeknownst at the time, a few survived including this copy. University administration feared criticism and felt like destroying the issues was 'in the best interest' of the university. Within this issue Furman students had published an article supporting desegregation, an article scolding the Baptists, and a story about religious hypocrisy.
