Periodicals/The Chautauquan

From DPWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This periodical was issued monthly from Sept-June (1880-1913?). There don't seem to have been issues for July and August, presumably because the Chautauquan Institue was in session then. The Institute is still in existence, meeting every summer in Chautauqua, NY. The magazine was merged with The Outlook around 1913. The magazine was intended to supplement and inform the Chautauqua Learning Circles. There was a reading list of about half a dozen books for each year, and the Chautauquan folks actually published their own editions (in paperback) of many of them. Some were classics, some were written for this audience. The recommended reading lists would be an interesting addition to our Book Lists.

We haven't started running these through DP yet, but be assured, they will be coming!
