Notes

'While The Youth’s Companion peaked in popularity under the ownership of Daniel Sharp Ford, who purchased the publication in 1857 and owned it until his death in 1899, it actually dates back further than that. The Youths Companion was founded in Boston in 1827 by Nathaniel Willis and his partner Asa Rand. By most accounts the Companion was a terribly boring and dry magazine filled with religious articles and moral instruction. It was important because there were few magazines targeted at children available at this time. […] After the death of Daniel Sharp Ford in 1899, his company changed its name from the Perry Mason Company to Perry Mason and Company.'
