Modelled on The Strand, it was originally planned as a US edition of
The Idler and initially reprinted much material from it. Cheaply priced, it became the
1890s trend-setter for American illustrated magazines (Munsey’s Magazine soon
copied it); known for its exposes and muckraking, it was also a major vehicle for popular
fiction. Authors included Conan Doyle, O. Henry, Jack London, Joel Chandler Harris,
W.A. White, etc. (from Philsp.com)
Plum contributed nine stories to McClure’s Magazine, between
1914 and 1922.
