The St. Nicholas Magazine was a popular children's magazine published from 1873 to 1940 by Scribner’s. Mary Mapes Dodge was the editor until her death in 1905 when William Fayal Clarke took her place. It featured high quality children's authors and illustrators including Louisa May Alcott, Mark Twain, Frances Hodgson Burnett, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and E. B. White. When Clarke was editor, the St. Nicholas Magazine placed more emphasis on departments and the magazine added divisions devoted to short plays, science and stamp collecting. The stamp collecting column was a regular feature until the publication’s last issue (volume 67) in February 1940. Note: Vols. 68-69 never published. In 1943 St. Nicholas was briefly revived by Juliet Lit Sterne in 1943, but failed again within months.
