The Williams Record is the student newspaper of Williams College. It was founded in 1887.[1] News broken by the Record is often reported in other newspapers like The Berkshire Eagle,[2][3] the North Adams Transcript,[4] and The New York Times.[5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12]

Former Record staffers have gone on to careers with major newspapers, and/or in book and magazine publishing. Dan Keating, a 1983 Record editor-in-chief, went on to win a Pulitzer Prize as part of a team at The Washington Post.
