The Mahogany Tree was a weekly[1] literary magazine published from January until December 1892. The magazine was based in Boston.[2]

Overview[edit]

The magazine was started by Mildred Aldrich,[3] and it was supposedly 'devoted solely to the "fine arts"'.[4] As a review in The Harvard Crimson said, the aim was to 'give criticisms on books, pictures, music, and acting'.[3]

Contributors comprised Philip Henry Savage, Ralph Adams Cram,[5] Louise Imogen Guiney[5] and F. Holland Day,[5] amongst others. The magazine first published the work of Willa Cather.[6][7]
