Outlook, The.

A weekly magazine that appeared from 1870 until 1935. Originally it was called the Christian Union and was edited by <IR> HENRY WARD BEECHER </IR> , who had announced in <IR> THE INDEPENDENT </IR> (1861) that he "would assume the liberty of meddling with every question which agitated the civil or Christian community." In 1893 the name was changed to The Outlook, and by that time <IR> LYMAN ABBOTT </IR> was editor. A sensation was created when <IR> THE ODORE ROOSEVELT </IR> joined its staff in 1909; he wrote articles agitating for many reforms. <IR> HAMILTON WRIGHT MABIE </IR> was another noted staff member. In 1928 the magazine absorbed The Independent. It became a monthly in 1932 as The New Outlook.
