Margaret L. "Peg" Ziperman was born in Clarksburg, West Virginia, in 1915. She received her bachelor's degree at American University and completed graduate work in English Literature at Indiana University. She later earned a second graduate degree in Library and Information Science.

She was a member of the Friends of the McNay, a benefactor of Trinity University, a member of the Board of Directors of the San Antonio Chamber of Music Society, and a member of the Alamo City Theatre Board of Volunteers.

The Trinitonian, Trinity University

  • UA08.001
  • Corporate body
  • 1875-

The Trinitonian (1900-present) is the weekly student-run newspaper of Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. First published under the name Trinity Exponent (1888-1900), the periodical traces its history to 1888, when a number of campus literary societies banded together to launch a monthly magazine exhibiting student creative work in fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. At that time, such literary societies (and their related publications) afforded students a rare opportunity to express ideas and opinions outside of the classroom. In 1900 the Trinity Exponent was renamed the Trinitonian, and by 1915 it had evolved into a weekly newspaper that covered campus news and calendar information, as well as some local and world events. Currently, contributions to the Trinitonian are open to the university community, but staff is comprised primarily of Trinity students. The publication features campus news, political opinions, literary works and criticisms, and advertisements.
