Once in a while you discover a nugget of culture that makes you double-take. So it is with the publication, The Chicagoan - a spittin' image knock-off of the New Yorker that published in the 1920's and 1930's. The University of Chicago library has digitized the entire collection - God bless 'em - and you can view issues here.
Thanks are apparently due to Emeritus Professor Neil Harris who discovered old issues in the U of C library stacks back in the 1980's and subsequently published the book The Chicagoa: A Lost Magazine of the Jazz Age.
The New Yorker carttons and columns, and the slightly altered Topics of the Town - you just don't see the appropriation of another magazine's entire guts every day. It makes Us and People look like different genres!
For people who like looking through old stuff, and especially people with ties to Chicago or a passion for that era, I present to you hours and hours of entertainment.
