Historical Context:
"Town Topics: The Journal of Society" was a magazine published in New York City by William d'Alton Mann in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The magazine had begun life some years earlier as The American Queen, edited by Louis Keller, the founder of the Social Register, and "dedicated to art, music, literature, and society." Under Mann, however, it transitioned into a more of a scandal sheet, reporting high-society peccadilloes.
