In the wake of The New Yorker's creation, a group of Chicagoans decided to create a like-minded publication for the Windy City. With that in mind, The Chicagoan was born in 1926. This jaunty publication, which lasted until 1935, aimed "to portray the city as a cultural hub and counter its image as a place of violence and vice." This remarkable website created by the University of Chicago Library brings together the near-complete run contained within the library's collection for general consideration. Visitors can start by browsing through some of the historic covers on the site, and then move on to perform a full text search of every issue. New users may wish to start by looking at the April 9, 1927 issue, which contains a number of humorous illustrations and a profile of the editor of Poetry, Henry Blake Fuller. [KMG]
