The Outlook

The Outlook was a weekly magazine published in New York City from 1870 to 1935. Founded by a group of Congregationalist ministers, the magazine was known for its liberal and progressive stance on political and social issues.Image:the-outlook-sample-cover

The Outlook covered a wide range of topics, including politics, literature, and the arts. It was particularly noted for its coverage of the women's suffrage movement and the campaign for civil rights for African Americans.

Throughout its history, The Outlook featured contributions from many notable writers and public figures, including Theodore Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Mark Twain. The magazine also published both fiction and non-fiction books.

One of The Outlook's most significant contributions to American journalism was its creation of the "Outlook School of Journalism" in 1901. The school provided training and support for aspiring journalists, and many of its graduates went on to successful careers in the field.

As the 20th century progressed, The Outlook struggled to maintain its relevance in a rapidly changing media landscape, and its circulation declined. The magazine ultimately ceased publication in 1935, but its legacy lives on in the many writers and journalists who were inspired by its progressive values and commitment to social justice.

Today, The Outlook is remembered as an important publication in the history of American journalism, documenting the social and political changes of the late 19th and early 20th centuries and providing a platform for some of the most important writers and thinkers of the era.{{Categories}}
