Notes: Once called "the great American nickelodean," the Atkinson's evening post, and Philadelphia Saturday News has, with its great diversity of offerings, amused and informed Americans longer than any other general magazine. The front page of a typical number of the Post contained a column and a half of poetry, some tales, a section of household hints, and a department of periodical essays. On the second page were domestic and foreign news items and miscellaneous feature material, while the third and fourth pages contained nonpolitical editorials, news, advertisements, death and marriage notices, and more poetry. In 1828 Samuel C. Atkinson became the sole publisher, with Benjamin Mathias as his editor, and thus began the second phase of the Post's history. During its first twenty-five years the Post was not particularly outstanding, but during its second twenty-five years it became a well-known Saturday miscellany, publishing the works of both famous and lesser-known contributors. Its third quarter-century was spent obscurely. This was followed by the Curtis-Lorimer era, which lasted for forty-five years, including the Stout editorship; it was in this period that the Post became an American institution. The modern period in 1942, when Ben Hibbs became editor. Cf. American periodicals, 1741-1900.
