Definitions of SUNDAY NEWSPAPERS
Sort: Oldest first
The first started in this country was the Sunday Courier, which appeared in New York in 1825 and lived but a few months. Several other Sunday journals, however, followed the Sunday Courier. Of these the Atlas, started in 1837 by three journeymen printers, was the most successful. Prior to the Civil War about a dozen of these Sunday papers were begun and discontinued after a short time. They gradually became more successful, many of the dailies issuing a Sunday edition. The public sentiment was strongly against them at first. By 1880 there were 225 Sunday papers, half that number being Sunday editions of dailies.
