Joseph Marshall Stoddart
Joseph Marshall Stoddart (August 10, 1845 — February 25, 1921), was an American business man, Editor of Lippincott's Monthly Magazine from 1886 to 1894 and later of the New Science Review.
A memorial inscription at the Langham Hotel, London, commemorates a meeting there on 30 August 1889 between Stoddart, Oscar Wilde, and Arthur Conan Doyle, when Stoddart commissioned them to write stories for Lippincott's. Doyle wrote The Sign of Four, which Stoddart published in February 1890, while Wilde wrote The Picture of Dorian Gray, published in the magazine in July 1890.
