Publication History

The Argosy was founded in 1882 by Frank Munsey as "The Golden Argosy", and was originally a children's newspaper. It adopted the name The Argosy in 1888, and went to a pulp magazine format in 1894. It absorbed The Junior Munsey in 1902. It absorbed Railroad Man's Magazine in 1919 and for a short time was titled "Argosy and Railroad Man's Magazine". It merged with "The All-Story" in 1920, and published as "Argosy All-Story Weekly" for much of the 1920s, but resumed the shorter "Argosy" name after the launch of a new "All-Story" in 1929. The first actively copyright-renewed issue is January 5, 1929 (v. 200 no. 4). The first actively copyright-renewed contribution is from January 12, 1929 (v. 200 no. 5). (More details) Its last issue was published in 1978. There have been a few short-lived revivals since.
