The Geneva College student newspaper, known as The Cabinet, was as prominent in the 1920s as it is today on campus. Unfortunately, all the issues of The Cabinet through the decade of the 1920s are missing from the Geneva College archive. There are, however, photographs of The Cabinet staff through the decade, as well as a list of the officers and contributors to the paper. Want to see what The Cabinet staff looked like in the 1920s? Click on a year: 1923, 1925, 1928.Both men and women were on staff for the paper, though for the most part the editor-in-chief position was held by men, except for in the year 1925, in which Ruth Washabaugh was the editor.

The paper frequently reported on campus events and clubs, including the YMCA and YWCA, and the Aletheorian and Adelphic Literary Societies. In addition, local news and alumni news were included in the paper.
