History

The Lewis Flyer was founded in 1933, although it was then called The Propeller. The Propeller was published until 1936, when lack of funds stopped the publishing of the newspaper. This lasted until 1947. During World War II the school was being used to train pilots. When the paper was published again in 1947, it did not have an official name.

However, in October 1947, the now-revived paper was named The Shield. This name lasted until 1966. The Shield was named after the founder, Bishop Bernard J. Schiel. The school paper shortened its name to Shield in 1966, and published the paper in a magazine format.

In 1969, the newspaper went through another name change, this time calling itself Nexus. This name only lasted from 1969 to 1972. In 1972, the paper was dubbed Journal, this lasting until 1978.

Finally, on January 31, 1978, the first volume of The Flyer was published. That name has been in place for the past 38 years.
