Rattler, The                                                                                                                 1924-2019

Note: The student newspaper began in 1919 as the St. Louis College Bulletin.  In 1923 the name changed to St. Mary’s College Bulletin.  Then in 1924, the paper relaunched as The Rattler.  In 1934 The Rattler won the highest award of the Catholic School Press Association and the second highest of the National Scholastic Press Association.  The Rattler at different times alternated between a broadsheet format and a tabloid and between a monthly and a semi-monthly.  Under the editorship of Henry Krausse (BA ’78), it published weekly.  Noeli Lytton (BA ’71) was the first female editor.  During 2001-02, The Rattler staff disbanded after an impasse with the university administration over content.  It revived the next year with Francisco Vara-Orta as editor hired by the Dean of Students.  The Rattler launched its first web site in 2003.  In 2004, under the editorship of Chuck Kerr (BA ’07) The Rattler won the best newspaper award of the Associated Collegiate Press.  In 2010 the Texas Intercollegiate Press Association awarded The Rattler “Best of Show” in its division and again in 2019.  During the Spring of 2013 there appeared The Venom, a magazine edition.  Then in May 2019 there appeared The Rattler Magazine inaugural edition.  The fall semester of 2020 endured the Covid-19 shutdown from March to the end of the semester.
