The Jack Fisler Paper on the North Carolina Collegiate Press Association contains a graded report by Fisler about reactivating the North Carolina Collegiate Press Association. It appears to have been submitted to Professor Selz Mayo in the Department of Sociology.

John "Jack" Fletcher Fisler, born in Ivanhoe, North Carolina, was editor of the Technician student newspaper from 1946-1947. In this graded report, he describes his efforts to reactivate the dormant North Carolina Collegiate Press Association. This organization of college journalists had been inactive since 1941. In 1946, Fisler revived it for several reasons: to provide a place for free exchange of ideas, for increased fellowship between neighboring colleges, to provide opportunities for new journalists to learn, and to provide means for college presses to organize and advocate for particular issues. Fisler was elected president of NCCPA and helped to organize the first convention since pre-war times, held May 9th and 10th, 1947. Fisler passed away in 1999.
