 Launched by Colonel William D’Alton Mann as a companion to his weekly of society news and literary criticism, Town Topics, with much of the same snob appeal. It became one of the most prominent literary periodicals of its era, later being edited by H. L. Mencken. It is notable for original contributions by, among others, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Eugene O’Neill and O. Henry, and has been called “a magazine of neglected, though inestimable value to library history as the proving grounds, between 1900 and 1924, of more illustrious careers … than any other journal ever published in America.” Absorbed New McClure’s (1023) in May 1929.
