The New York Dramatic Mirror (magazine)

Prominent theatrical trade newspaperCreated by: PICRYLDated: 1879
The New York Dramatic Mirror, Christmas 1907 cover - John Cecil Clay
The paper was founded in January 1879 by Ernest Harvier as the New York Mirror. In stating its purpose to cover the theater, it proclaimed that coverage of the dramatic profession had been "degraded by having its affairs treated in the professedly theatrical papers side by side with prize fights, cocking matches, baseball, and other sports." This referred to competitors such as the New York Clipper.

The word "Dramatic" was inserted in the title in 1889, and the "New York" dropped in 1917. Harrison Grey Fiske started contributing in 1879, and eventually obtained ownership of the paper. Fiske's involvement ended in 1911. Frederick Franklin Schrader and Lymon O. Fiske then took over.

The paper published until April 1922, after changing from a weekly publication to a monthly at its very end.
