The first link has all volumes from 1 to 94 (1876-1922) except those at the other two links.
The American Magazine was founded in 1906 as a continuation of a failed publication purchased from publishing mogul Miriam Leslie. It began as Frank Leslie’s Popular Monthly in 1876 and went through two more name changes prior to 1906. This site contains virtually all volumes since 1876. When new management took over in 1906, muckraking journalists Ray Stannard Baker, Lincoln Steffens and Ida M. Tarbell left McClure’s (also found on this web page) for American Magazine. Baker used the pseudonym David Grayson (but sometimes also used his own name). Besides social issues, American Magazine also focused on human interest stories and fiction.

DDC: 050

 

Known at various times as the American Monthly Review of Reviews and Review of Reviews, but not to be confused with its British counterpart, also entitled Review of Reviews. According to a profile in Wikipedia, the American Review of Reviews “…represented the views and concerns of participants in the trans-Atlantic culture of progressive reform…”, and is “…one of the best primary sources on American reform between 1890 and 1920, providing not only a panoramic view of the range of reformers’ interests, but also the ties between British and American progressives.”

The linked page has several copies of the series. The series from Univ. of Michigan appears to be the most complete.
“Has probably maintained the highest average literary standard of any American magazine. The fiction, poetry and literary criticism are usually excellent and the literary essay has always been a prominent feature. Philosophical, political, economic and sociological matters are treated in scholarly but semi-popular fashion. Liberal rather than radical in viewpoint.”

“The most widely read of the women’s magazines and as popular in reading rooms as for home use. The serials and short stories are always moral in purpose and often of considerable literary merit. Biography, current social movements and social reform are well represented. Personal hygiene and personal ethics, in all their phases are included in every, number. Many distinct departments deal with every side of domestic life from cooking, holiday and other entertainments, dressmaking and millinery to house planning and decoration. Much criticised for the very obvious character of much of its ethical teaching and other advice, and so widely read by all classes as to be nearly superfluous in many smaller libraries.”
– – F. K. Walter, Periodicals for the Small Library, ALA 1918

The Ladies’ Home Journal first appeared in 1883, and in 1903 became the first American magazine to reach 1 million subscribers. It was the most popular American women’s magazine through the 1950s, and then began to fall behind competitors in circulation. In 2014 it ceased publication as a monthly.

Covers domestic and foreign current events, pure and applied science, religion, philosophy, art, literature and so forth. Impartial, with no editorial page. Its wide scope and brief, popularized articles make it popular with busy people and its wide range makes it valuable for reference, though this is sometimes lessened by the brevity of the articles. The current poetry included in every issue is a valuable feature. Much used in high school classes.”

McClure’s

New York

Vol 1 (1893) – Vol 54 (1922)

DDC: 050

 

McClure’s magazine (1893-1929) is credited with having started the tradition of muckraking journalism (investigative, watchdog or reform journalism), and helped shape the moral compass of the day. The magazine featured both political and literary content, publishing serialized novels-in-progress, a chapter at a time. In this way, McClure’s published such writers as Willa Cather, Arthur Conan Doyle, Herminie T. Kavanagh, Rudyard Kipling, Jack London, Lincoln Steffens, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Mark Twain. Examples of its work include Ida Tarbell’s series in 1902 exposing the monopoly abuses of John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company, and Ray Stannard Baker’s earlier look at the United States Steel Corporation, which focused the public eye on the conduct of corporations.

The scope of the work was immense, its circulation was large (the largest in the United States, by some accounts) … ”
