College Humor

Starts in 1921 as a series of reprints of collegiate publications and evolves into a bonafide magazine of new material, by about the beginning of Vol 2. In this latter incarnarnation it included fiction and light entertainment aimed at a "college" audience, and featured sketches of "pin-up" beauties on its covers. Included stories by Ellis Parker Butler, Zelda Fitzgerald (by-lined with F. Scott Fitzgerald) and Groucho Marx.

It was bought out Dell, and relaunched in Nov-1934, and then bought by Ned Pines in the late 30s and converted to a girlie mag.
