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 volume for 1891 included a juvenile column, and short stories and humor appeared between 1893 and 1897. Gideon B. Smith, J. Irvine Hitchcock, Edward P. Roberts, Samuel Sands, and William B. Sands followed Skinner as editors. Cf. American periodicals, 1741-1900.
