Rediscovering a lost magazine
Historian Neil Harris stumbled upon something a few years back. Browsing through the stacks of the University Chicago Library, he found a mysterious relic of the past. Or perhaps something from a parallel universe.
"The Chicagoan" was that city's answer to "The New Yorker". He has out a new book about the lost magazine. You can see a gallery and covers here.
