The Quill Magazine

The Quill was a general information and literary magazine published at Northern State Normal School from November 25, 1914 to July 1918 and was followed by the student newspaper, the Northern Normal News. The Quill also served the function of a yearbook.

Confusingly, in the early 1920s, Northern State Normal High School, later John D. Pierce Training School, called their yearbook the Quill. It appears to be unaffiliated with the earlier magazine of the same name at the college.
