Scribner’s Magazine 1910 — 1922

This was the second magazine founded by the New York City publishing firm of Scribner’s. The first magazine, Scribner’s Monthly, ran from 1870 to 1881, and then continued as The Century, under another publisher. In 1887 the new Scribner’s Magazine began, running until 1939. The MJP’s digital edition of this publication covers the years 1910 through 1922. During these years Scribner’s published writing by Arthur Conan Doyle, E. W. Hornung, Rudyard Kipling, John Galsworthy, Robert Louis Stevenson, Edward Arlington Robinson, Amy Lowell, Edith Wharton, Sara Teasdale, and F. Scott Fitzgerald. This represents a range of authors and texts from popular to seriously literary, even though every issue devoted roughly half its pages to advertising. Beyond fiction and poetry, of course, this magazine also printed articles of cultural and historical interest, ranging from travel writing by Theodore Roosevelt to reflections on the Panama Canal’s construction by George W. Goethals, and a good deal of writing about World War I, both before and after the United States entered the conflict.
