Founded in 1894 as The Bostonian, the magazine was re-named The National Magazine in 1896 to reflect its expanded coverage of American topics and letters. It became the leading national journal of American life and Washington affairs before the rise of TIME and LIFE magazines in the 1920s and 1930s.These topics were covered on a national scale when the magazine expanded its coverage in the late 1890s, along with increasing coverage of international affairs.
