I grew up with a few decades of this magazine, bound, on the bookshelf. I would look at them as a child, almost fifty years ago, in wonderment at what life was like fifty years before.

I have been bored by the filter in the past few weeks, but you have found something wonderful, something that I would not have found on my own. Great post.

Reminiscent of Arthur Mee's Children's Encyclopedia and Children's Newspaper in the U.K.
I grew up with the 1930's version of the Encyclopedia (by then a fund of obsolete information on a wide range of topics) and enjoyed it enormously.

It would be cool if it was still published today, but what would it look like?

Very cool - thanks.

Is there anything in there about 6 to 8 black men?

Wow, that's great. Thanks, hama7!

One thing that puzzles me: the second link has a list of "other frequent contributors" that includes Emily Dickinson, but when I searched for her using the search box in the third link there were no results. She couldn't possibly have been a "frequent contributor," but I'm curious about whether she even had one poem in the magazine.
