The North American Review

The North American Review

Founded in Boston in 1815, The North American Review (NAR) was the first literary magazine in the United States, and was published continually until 1940, when publication was suspended due to World War II. Publication subsequently resumed in 1964 at Cornell College (Iowa). Since 1968 the University of Northern Iowa (Cedar Falls) has been home to the publication. Nineteenth-century archives are freely available via Cornell University’s Making of America.
