The Galaxy was best known for the pages it devoted to fiction in each and every issue. At least one serial, sometimes two or three, and a number of short stories and poems were included. Richard Grant White, Justin McCarthy, Rebecca Harding Davis, Jane G. Austin, and Paul Hamilton Hayne (to name only a few) contributed often. However, the most popular section was entitled "Memoranda." This was written and edited by Mark Twain. Although the department appeared for only a year, it was then that the magazine reached its highest circulation. By 1878, circulation had declined greatly and the Galaxy was absorbed by the Atlantic Monthly.Cf. American periodicals, 1741-1900

Search Tips

Phrase Searching

Use quotes to search an exact phrase: e.g. "occult fiction"


Use * or ? to search for alternate forms of a word. Use * to stand for several characters, and ? for a single character: e.g. optim* will find optimal, optimize or optimum; wom?n will find woman and women.

Boolean Searching

Use AND and OR between words to combine them with Boolean logic: e.g. (heart OR cardiac) AND surgery will find items about heart surgery or cardiac surgery. Boolean terms must be in uppercase.
