Overview and metadata sections

The first issue of Haverford Twopenny Press appeared on February 21, 1964. It was published once a week during the semester. Topics were "social issues" and the weekly saw itself as "non-partisan," noting "we publish articles to stimulate controversy and action, rather than to press a particular point of view." The last issue appears to be November 27, 1965; it is unclear if publication continued after that time.

This alternative weekly published articles on social issues at the international, national state, and local level. Each issue usually contained one or two essays, signed by the authors, and a few announcements. Topics included the Civil Rights movement, the Vietnam War, campus free speech demonstrations, and current events in Zanzibar, Guyana (then British Guiana), Kashmir, and Cuba.
