December 3rd, 1914 – New England Edition

I’ve added another issue, December 3rd, 1914’s New England Edition. To be perfectly honest I’m not sure what differentiates the NE Edition from the “Standard” edition yet, other than the inside back page has a section entitle “New England and Other Matters.” When I get some issues from the same date I might be able to make a better judgement.

Works in this issue include:

  • Ammon’s Long Whip by C.H. Claudy
  • Old Plantation Days by Archibald Rutledge
  • The Art of Conversation by Mrs. Burton Harrison
  • The “Torpedo” Girl by Gardner Hunting (Chapter 5 of 5)
  • Under the “Spouter” by Fisher Ames Jr.
  • A column on “The European War,” namely World War I.
  • A timely piece called “How to Keep Resolutions
  • A great Campbell’s Tomato Soup ad, “Under the Love-Apple Tree

One comment on “December 3rd, 1914 – New England Edition

  1. To whom it may concern: My great-great grandfather Joseph Edgar Chamberlin was an associate editor at Youth’s Companion from the late 1880s to 1900 or so. I am interested in reading copies of YC during that timeframe. Will you have any issues from that time in future posts? Would be most interested. Thank you, Elizabeth Emerson
