In 1852, the American Geographical Society began publishing its first academic journal, the Bulletin [and Journal] of the American Geographical Society.[2] This publication continued through 1915, when it was succeeded by the Geographical Review.[3]

Notable contributors include Robert J. Flaherty, who introduced the concept for Nanook of the North in his contributions to Geographical Review.[4]
