The Tombstone Epitaph


They call Tombstone "the town too tough to die," and for more than a century, The Tombstone Epitaph has been part of the area's colorful history. Students have produced the local edition since 1975 as part of the Community Journalism class.

Epitaph staffers recently won Arizona Newspapers Association awards for feature writing; photography; and sustained coverage, for their reporting about the Minutemen Project's activities on the U.S.-Mexico border. Students were in competition with professional journalists working for community newspapers throughout Arizona.

The Epitaph, which is published every two weeks during the fall and spring academic semesters, is distributed in specific locations throughout southern Arizona and is available online.
