Overview and metadata sections

The initial issue notes that previous humor magazines were not found funny and hopes this one will be. The editors' note on the first issue claims that the "management" of Inner Blight had previously tried to create a humor magazine at Haverford under a different name. They hoped that Inner Blight would be a more successful attempt.

This collection contains two issues of the Haverford humor magazine Inner Blight. Issues included short satirical articles and plays. Their content often related to life at Haverford, but some other recurring themes were religion, sex, and veganism. Some material is anti-Semitic.
