New York Dramatic Mirror


New York Dramatic Mirror
   Founded as the New York Mirror in 1879, the trade paper of the theatrical profession added the word Dramatic in its official name in 1884, but was popularly known as The Dramatic Mirror. Editor (and for a time, sole proprietor) Harrison Grey Fiske led it to an impressive circulation by including gossipy pieces of interest to a general readership, even as he used it in the fight against the Theatrical Syndicate. Fiske ended his association with the journal in 1911 and its fortunes declined as Variety gained ascendancy, and in 1922, the Dramatic Mirror ceased publication.
