A student publication of the Hasbrouck Institute, these issues were from the collection of James B. Pond ("Bim"), the son of Major James Pond, a 19th century impressario who founded the Pond Bureau. Both the father and son organized and set up lecture tours for important personalities of their time. Mark Twain and Henry M. Stanley were among the many clients they befriended.

James "Bim" Pond was a graduate of the Hasbrouck Institute in 1906 and edited The Sphynx from December 1905, when it was revived, until his graduation in June 1906.

The Hasbrouck Institute was founded as a preparatory collegiate institute for boys in 1856 by Dr. Washington Hasbrouck. Many of its graduates went on to occupy prominent positions in Jersey City and throughout the country.
