Our friends/clients at America magazine this month celebrated their 100th anniversary. As a bonus to our blog readers, here’s the story we distributed this week marking the momentous occasion. As reporter Chaz Muth observed in the story, “Only a handful of magazines have been around longer than America, and its impact on American Catholicism and society has been substantial.”
Congratulations from all of us at Catholic News Service.
Jim: It’s too bad you missed the 11-week series I did two years ago on the first 60 years of The Wanderer for our 140th anniversary. It was a great piece of scholarship. A Benedictine from St. John’s in Collegeville translated a large number of news stories and editorials (the paper was published in German until 1930), touching on all the major issues facing the American Church, from Vatican I to World War I and the Great Depression.
