The Sunny South: A Gilded Age Publishing Phenomenon.
Bussel, Alan
This document analyzes the South's most successful version of a Gilded Age reading favorite, the "Sunny South" story magazine, published by John Henry Seals and edited by Mary Edwards Bryan, in terms of its economic growth and development, article and short story content, and editorial policy. The history of the magazine is traced over a period of years from its inception in 1874 to its eventual sale to the "Atlanta Constitution" in 1893, and the development of the "Sunny South" is examined in terms of national, regional, and local contexts. This document also examines the personalities of the editor and publisher as they reflect editorial and content policies, specifically analyzing the magazine's conservative editorial remarks about Mormonism in contrast to a progressive approach toward women's rights and liberties. The document concludes with a brief summary about the editor and publisher. (RB)
