The Register is a BLS publication showcasing visual art and poetry made by BLS students. The Register got its name from its earliest issues in the late 1800s, which registered news and events related to the school, and included student contributions as well as the editors’ articles. The first issue was published in 1881 and featured sports news, a military drill column, various advertisements, poems and a parody of Vergil’s Aeneid. The Register began to focus mainly on student submissions in the 1950s and 1960s. George Santayana (Class of 1882), the famous Spanish-American philosopher and essayist, was a founding member of the Register.
