RISD press was a student newspaper published weekly in the early 1970s, a self-described attempt at consolidating all the information outlets of the school, including the previous student newspaper, Montage. The issue of April 27, 1973 had an article about the firing of Harry Beckwith, RISD faculty in the Graphic Design department. There also was an article from the Dean Randolph, dean of students at RISD who was leaving RISD because of the way Beckwith's firing was handled. The RISD President also wrote an article on why Harry Beckwith was fired. Comics, a recipe and events for RISD students were also mentioned.
