On Feb. 17, 1965, the Auburn Globe briefly announced bid opening on the production of Green River's first class catalog. At only 52 pages, this catalog would eventually expand nearly four times that size less than 50 years later.

Also on this date, the Globe published Green River President Lindbloom's first Calendar of Events, which listed exactly 17 dates over the course of an entire academic year. Today, it's not uncommon to see that many events advertised in a single month.
