Welcome to The Wellesley Index to Victorian Periodicals, 1824-1900

‘It was once the fashion to object to anonymous newspaper writing on the ground that it enabled little men to have their fling at great ones…’
The New Hamlet and His Critics, Alfred Ainger, using the pseudonym, A Templar. MacMillan's Magazine, Volume 31, January 1875, p236-241.

The vast majority of articles written for Victorian periodicals were published anonymously, or under pseudonyms. The Wellesley Index identifies the authors of articles within 45 major Victorian periodicals, and provides a bibliography for each contributor.
