Abstract

Journals have long been a staple in the history of the spread of mathematical ideas. This paper analyzes one the first attempts at such a journal in the United States: The Ladies and Gentlemen’s Diary, and traces the evolution of the journal through its author and editor Melatiah Nash. The contributors and mathematics of the journal are also considered and the journal is compared to several of its contemporaries. Synthesizing all of this information reveals that Nash’s publication contained a wide range of mathematics, reached a diverse group of people, and was relatively successful in how it was received and in reaching the editor’s goals for the journal.
