The Independent

The Independent was an American magazine of religion, politics, and literature published in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It was published weekly in New York for most of its lifespan, though in its later years it shifted to fortnightly, and moved to Boston.

Publication History

The Independent began in 1848 as a Congregationalist journal, but later broadened its focus. It absorbed Harper's Weekly in 1916. It absorbed the Weekly Review in 1921, and for a few months in 1921 and 1922 was known as The Independent and the Weekly Review. No issue copyright renewals exist for this magazine, but some contributions renewed copyrights. It ran until 1928, when it was absorbed by The Outlook.
