The nation's second oldest college humor magazine, Penn State Froth was founded in 1909 and published from 1910 to 1985. The magazine was founded and established to replace Penn State University's first humor magazine, "The Lemon," which published its final issue on June 10, 1908. Froth became wildly popular among students and it also became influential to the culture of the university. Froth’s mascot, a jester named Frothy who graced the covers of many of the earlier issues, eventually began making personal appearances along with the Nittany Lion at Penn State football games. This collection features a total of 19,876 digitized images.
