Description

APD raid on the Eagle on Pounce de Leon controversial handling and over reaction on the part of Atlanta Police Department causes public outcry of homophobia.

The Signal, volume 77, number 5 (September 22, 2009). The Signal was formed in 1943 by the merger of two student newspapers, The Evening Signal (1933-1943), and The Junior Collegiate (1935-1943). Since 1943, GSU has been the Atlanta Division of the University of Georgia (1947-1955), then an independent unit known as the Georgia State College of Business Administration (1955-1961), Georgia State College (1961-1969) and finally Georgia State University (from 1969). The Signal has been published continuously since 1943, but reflecting the evolution of GSU, its masthead has also had the titles The University Signal, The Georgia State Signal, The Georgia State College Signal, and the Georgia State University Signal. The University Archives has a good run of copies of The Signal, but is missing issues from various years.
