Sunday Magazine Supplements [1905]

During the period 1902 to 1920 (roughly) several US newspapers carried a weekly (or monthly) syndicated Sunday supplement usually titled The Sunday Magazine of the xxxx. These typically came from one of four separate syndicates:

American Sunday Monthly Magazine
  Associated Sunday Magazine
  Illustrated Sunday Magazine
  The National Sunday Magazine

each of which is discussed in its own section.

Their exact titles varied a bit over time and space, but almost every individual newspaper's illustrated magazine-size supplement of this era represents one of these four syndicated periodicals. In Boston, for example, The Boston American ran the American Sunday Monthly Magazine, The Boston Post used the Associated Sunday Magazine, The Boston Herald published the Illustrated Sunday Magazine, and The Boston Globe featured The National Sunday Magazine.
