Lewis Mumford: A Bibliography / B. Writings in Periodicals

Return to: Lewis Mumford: A Bibliography

Note: The term "periodical," as I have used it, has a broad scope to include such publications as the proceedings of a society, association, or similar organization. This interpretation seemed preferable to scattering the citations over a number of categories in order to accommodate minor exceptions.

A special point needs to be made in regard to Mumford's articles published in the New Yorker. Thanks to Robert O. Johnson's An Index to Literature in the 'New Yorker'; Volumes I-XV, 1925-1940, I discovered that in the period from October 5, 1929, to April 2, 1960, the New Yorker was published in both a New York City edition and an Out-of-Town edition. Pagination is not always identical in the same issue of each edition; therefore, an article in the same issue may appear on different pages in each edition. Except for libraries in the New York City area, most libraries have mixed sets as the New Yorker did not make careful distinction in mailing the two editions. And there is one further complicating factor: many of Mumford's articles, particularly in the early 1930's, appeared only in the New York City edition. These unfortunate quirks in publication should be kept in mind when referring to a citation to a New Yorker article published in the period mentioned above.

The reader should also note that, as so often happens in magazine and newspaper publication, the titles are not necessarily those chosen by the author. Occasionally they give a false clue to the contents.
