Historical Note

Concordia opened in 1905 as a high school for boys preparing to become Lutheran pastors. In 1950 a junior college was added. In 1977 the high school moved away from the campus, severing all formal ties, while the college expanded to four years.

The first extant literary publication, Tapestry, appeared in the 1973-1974 school year. Students have published their literary endeavors under various names since then.

The first student news publication, Where Rolls the Oregon, appeared in 1932. The student newspaper has undergone many name changes through the years; The Carillon was the most long-lived title.


Arrangement is by title and year of publication.


Further accruals are expected.
