The Tiger Rag was the student newspaper of LSU School of Medicine from 1932 -1994. The publication went through several iterations during it's course, including: The Tiger (1932-1940), the Journal of the LSU School of Medicine (1940-1947); and The Tiger Rag (1950-1994).
While the Tiger and The Tiger Rag were light publications focusing on humor, school news and events, the Journal of the LSU School of Medicine took a more scholarly approach, offering research articles and reviews of contemporary medical issues in addition to information about LSU Medical school and alumni. With that in mind, some comments contained within these newspapers may be offensive to modern readers. These publications are products of their time and presented here for their historical value.
