Biographical or Historical Information

To keep FSU alumni informed through its mailings, the Florida State University Alumni Association published its Alumni Comment newsletter four times a year. Publication began about 1965, since the journal is first described in the 1965-1966 FSU Bulletin, and ceased in 1973. According to a note in the collection from Sara Coulter (September 1969), an Alumni Office staff member, the Alumni Comment superceded the Alumni Bulletin, a quarterly publication, also published by the FSU Alumni Association.
