RISD press was a student newspaper published weekly in the early 1970s, a self-described attempt at consolidating into one digestible pile all the information outlets of the school, including the previous student newspaper, Montage. The issue of November 22, 1974 included an interview with Murray Danforth, Jr. treasurer of the RISD Corporation and a member of the RISD Board of Trustees. The Centennial building project was discussed. This issue also includes an article about the RISD Art History department and notes from the RISD student board meeting. Record and film reviews were also mentioned. Event listings on the RISD campus and in the Providence area were also included.
