After operating under the name, The Alternative: An American Spectator for several years, in 1977 the magazine changed its name to The American Spectator because, in editor Tyrrell’s words, “the word ‘alternative’ had come to be associated almost exclusively with radicals and with their way of life.”
In fact, Tyrrell had started the magazine on the campus of Indiana University Bloomington in 1967 as a conservative alternative to the student radicalism at the nation’s universities in the 1960s.
