The Hotchkiss Record


The Hotchkiss Record was established in 1893 and is currently publishing with its CXXIII Editorial Board. The Record currently serves 613 students and 124 faculty. Free copies are distributed on campus, and subscriptions can be mailed first-class at an annual cost of $25.

The Record was established in 1893 by Editor-in-Chief Charles Edmund Merril, Jr. ’94 and first started printing only six times in a school year. In 2018, 125 years later, The Record launched its digital presence under the CXX editorial board.  Notable alumni of The Record include Henry Robinson Luce and Briton Hadden, class of 1916, co-founders of Time Magazine, who served as assistant managing editor and editor-in-chief of The Record, respectively.

The Record is affiliated with the National Scholastic Press Association and the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. The Board welcomes letters and articles from readers. Letters should be addressed “Letter to the editors:” and must include the writer’s name. Those selected may be shortened for space.
