The Normal Leader is the student newspaper of the State University of New York at Fredonia, first published in 1893. Originally published by the all-female Agonian literary society, after its very first issue it became the publication of both the Agonian and the Zetesian (all-male) literary societies. The newspaper shortened its official name to simply The Leader in 1936, which is the title under which it is still published today. Heavily focused on literary content in its earliest years, the newspaper remains one of the most frequently requested and accessed published titles within the Archives & Special Collections of the Daniel A. Reed Library at Fredonia, which underscores its importance in supporting both college and regional history, as it provides a unique look into the history of higher learning in Western New York.
