Magazines have been popular and influential since the early decades of nationhood providing Americans with outlets for expression in many spheres of life – literature, politics, religion, fashion, leisure, and more. Their variety and longevity (some lasting well into the 20th and 21st centuries) prove their value especially to a nation in the process of defining itself and its culture. We’ll look at Ladies’ Home Journal, Harper’s Weekly, McClure’s, The Atlantic Monthly,  and The Saturday Evening Post among others that were, and are, America’s debate stage, classroom, and drawing board.
