* 1960: Gauntlet founded by Maurice Yacowar, replacing the existing CalVar one-sheet, publishing its first issue September 28, 1960. Despite Yacowar wanting to name the paper himself, the Students' Union insisted it be up to students and proposed a contest. All entries in the contest were submitted by Yacowar, who ended up naming the paper "The Gauntlet" anyway. [ [ Gauntlet Opinions - Yacowar and his legacy ] ]
* 1961: Yacowar removed as editor by Students' Union in February over a story in the literary supplement containing the line, "He came into her, and it was good." In April, Gauntlet editor Alan Arthur starts the U of C's Bermuda Shorts Day tradition after writing "Wear shorts tomorrow" on a chalkboard.
* 1969 & 1974: During both these years, The Gauntlet was shut down by the Students' Union over editorial content issues and replaced with a substitute paper, The Medium. Both times, there was significant overlap between the staff of both publications and subsequently The Medium was replaced by The Gauntlet by the beginning of the next school years.
* 1978: Gauntlet achieves autonomy from Students' Union.
* 2004: Gauntlet comes under fire for publishing nude photo as part of Sexual Awareness Week coverage.
