American Sunday Monthly Magazine

Country: US

One of the four Sunday Magazine Supplements published during the period 1902 to 1920 (roughly), the American Sunday Monthly Magazine was initially produced as a monthly supplement for Sunday newspapers on the first Sunday of the month. For at least a short period, between Nov-1912 and Jan-1913, it was produced twice, rather than just once, a month, and was then called the American Sunday Twice a Month Magazine (or Magazine Section).

The magazine appeared in at least five newspapers: The Boston American, The Chicago Examiner, The Los Angeles Examiner, The New York American, and The San Francisco Examiner.

Although the covers of the magazines were typically simply called The Sunday Magazine of the xxxx for each newspaper concerned, this syndicate is easy to recognize because American Sunday Monthly Magazine is part of the masthead.

Issues & Index Sources:  1911 – ?
Publishers:   American-Journal-Examiner Co., 220 Fifth Avenue, New York (in 1912); subsequently The Star Co.
Frequency:   monthly; twice-monthly for part of 1912
