500 $a The American Farmer was one of the most successful of the early farm papers and had the endorsement of such men as Jefferson, Madison, and Pickering. Founded by John S. Skinner, a postmaster at Baltimore, this partly eclectic magazine began as an eight page quarto devoted to "rural economy, internal improvements, news, prices current," and ran through a dozen series to its end in 1897. It was illustrated throughout its long life, and contained news on agriculture, horticulture, and livestock, market prices, and activities of agricultural societies. The first series featured a ladies' department and a "Sporting Olio"; with Skinner's departure, both columns disappeared but the ladies' department reappeared, along with foreign intelligence, when he returned in 1839. Cf. American periodicals, 1741-1900.
