The Country Gentleman

Originally a farming and rural magazine which ran occasional poems and extracts from novels; under Curtis (when it became a companion to The Saturday Evening Post) fiction became a strong feature. Authors included Ben Ames Williams and Zane Grey, a number of whose westerns were serialized here.

With the Aug-1955 issue, the magazine was sold to Farm Journal, which became Farm Journal and Country Gentleman from Sept-1955 through Nov-1956. The title was revived for a 1975-1982 run during which it carried a small amount of fiction.
