FUD Times

FUD TimesIn 1893, three students at St. John’s College, Paul A. Foley, Francis Uleau, and William P. Drennan began their own pamphlet, called FUD Times. It was the journal of the “FUD Society” of St. John’s College, named for the first letter of each person’s last name, “F”oley, “U”leau, and “D”rennan. Several articles in the FUD Times poke fun at Sparks, which was published around the same time by the Sparks Literary Society . All of the five known issues were handwritten. The March 16th issue was written on green paper for St. Patrick’s Day.
