Hearst's American Weekly Cover Index Part V: 1931 - 1935



The 1930s are a bad decade for my index, but an anonymous tip to check the Milwaukee Sentinel on Google News Archive filled in a ton of gaps at the last minute.

Apparently during most of this decade, Hearst only allowed his own papers to run the American Weekly section, so the availability on microfilm is very sparse. It wasn't a great decade for cartoon covers anyway; there was a lot of pseudo-science and pop history using up cover space.

Some notes on the listings:

* when you see a "#", that means that the cover is part of a numbered series and the number is given on the cover. Sometimes I remembered to write that down, sometimes I didn't so its catch-as-catch-can. If a series cover explicitly states that it is the first or final installment and its not obvious from the surrounding dates, I sometimes note that as "(start)" or "(end)".
* when I say "(story illo) that means that the cover is illustrating a text story in the magazine.
* I don't make guesses about covers I haven't seen. Therefore, even if I have one missing issue between installment 2 and 4 of a series, I resist the urge to assume what may be obvious.
* When a cover is descibed as, say, "Famous Fishes (Herring)", that means that the cover is part of a series titled Famous Fishes, and this particular cover depicts the herring.
