Historical Note

The News & Information Service office was called the Public Information Office and later the Office of Public Information prior to 1967. After Arlington State College became the University of Texas at Arlington, the Office of Public Information was continued and the name later changed to News & Information Service. In early 1976 it was changed to News Service. Ken Whitt was head of this office for much of the period.
