TEXAS MAGAZINE, AUSTIN. The first issue of the Texas Magazine appeared in Austin in May 1896, with Robert E. McCleary as editor and publisher. The content of the magazine was mainly historical, with some fiction and poetry. During its year of publication the magazine contained announcements of the beginning of the Texas State Historical Association and the activities of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas and other women's organizations. As the magazine became more literary, a section called "Among Writers and Books" was added. Texas writers whose works appeared in the magazine were historians Cadwell Walton Raines and James Thomas DeShields and poets William Lawrence (Larry) Crittenden and John Peter Sjolander. The last issue was published in June 1897.
