History

Abolitionists founded The Nation in July 1865 on "Newspaper Row" at 130 Nassau Street in Manhattan. At the time, Joseph H. Richards was the publisher and E.L. Godkin, a classical liberal critic of nationalism, imperialism, and socialism [4], was the editor. The magazine would stay at Newspaper Row for the next ninety years. Wendell Phillips Garrison, son of William Lloyd Garrison, was literary editor of the periodical from 1865 to 1906. This article is about the abolition of slavery. ...

In 1881, newspaperman-turned-railroad-baron Henry Villard acquired The Nation and converted it into a weekly literary supplement for his daily newspaper the New York Evening Post. The offices of the magazine were moved to the Evening Post's headquarters at 210 Broadway. The New York Evening Post would later morph into a tabloid: the New York Post was a left-leaning afternoon tabloid under owner Dorothy Schiff from 1939 to 1976, and has been a conservative tabloid owned by Rupert Murdoch since that time, while The Nation became known for its left-liberal politics. Henry Villard (April 10, 1835 – 1900), was an American journalist and financier of German origin. ...

In 1918, Henry's Villard's son, Oswald Garrison Villard, took over as editor of the magazine and sold the Evening Post. He remade The Nation into a current affairs publication and gave it a liberal orientation. Villard's takeover of The Nation prompted a roughly 50 year monitoring of the magazine by the FBI. The FBI had a file on Villard since 1915. Almost every editor of The Nation from Villard's time to the 1970s was looked at for "subversive" activities and ties.[5] When Albert Jay Nock, not long later, published a column criticizing Samuel Gompers and trade unions for being complicit in the war machine of the First World War, The Nation was briefly suspended from the U.S. mail.[6] Oswald Garrison Villard (1872 in Wiesbaden/Germany - 1949) was a U.S. journalist. ...

During the late 1940s and again in the early 1950s, a merger was discussed among Kirchwey - on The Nation's side (later McWilliams when he took over) - and Michael Straight of The New Republic. The two magazines were very similar at that time - both were left of center (The Nation further left than TNR); both had circulations around 100,000 (TNR had a slightly higher circulation); and both lost money - and it was thought that the two magazines could unite and make the most powerful journal of opinion. The new publication would have been called The Nation and New Republic. Kirchwey was the most hesitant, and both attempts to merge failed. The two magazines would later take very different paths, with The Nation having a higher circulation and The New Republic moving more to the right.[7] Michael Straight Michael Whitney Straight, (September 1, 1916 – January 4, 2004) was an American magazine publisher, novelist, patron of the arts, and a member of the prominent Whitney family. ...
