Author Judge Company

Author Details From 1881-1947, Judge was a satricial magazine. James Albert Wales, a cartoonist at Puck magazine, and Frank Tousey and George H. Jessop, publishers, founded the magazine. In the 1880s, William J. Arkel purchased the magazine, and lured more cartoonists away from Puck including F. Victor Gillam. He was a supporter of the Repbulican part and had the cartoonists attack Grover Cleveland. In 1886, Isaac Gregory took over as editor. Judge then allied with William McKinley (as seem on this magazine cover). In 1912, the magazine reached a circulation of 100,000. By 1932, the magazine was effected by the Depression as well as The New Yorker and became a monthly magazine. Circulation ended in 1947. In 1953, Judge started up again as a weekly.
