Begun in January, 1876 by Frank Leslie, the Popular Monthly survived until 1956. Its well-illustrated pages contained much miscellaneous material-serialized stories, short stories, a little poetry, essays in science, art, literature, and anthropology, and plenty of jokes and anecdotes. Travel articles gave attention to various foreign countries as well as to the World's Fair and such U.S. cities as Chicago, St. Louis, and New York. Joaquin Miller contributed the Monthly's first serial, The Pink Countess, and other contributors included Amelia E. Barr, Jane G. Austin, Harriet Prescott Spofford, and Horatio Alger, along with seral popular magazinists. Brander Matthews wrote on drama, Lady Blanche Murphy on European society, and Evert A. Duyckinck and Sarah K. Bolton on contemporary literature. When Leslie died in 1880 his widow took over until 1900 when she turned the editorship over to Ellery Sedgwick. Cf. American periodicals, 1741-1900.
