Daily Graphic

The Daily Graphic: An Illustrated Evening Newspaper was the first American newspaper with daily illustrations. It was founded in New York in 1873 by a firm of Canadian engravers and began publication in March of that year. It continued publication until September 23, 1889.

Highly illustrated, its lavish engravings included cartoons, reproductions of paintings, and illustrations of contemporary news events and notable personalities.

It was similar in idea to the London newspaper The Graphic, which was founded in 1869, and which commenced publication of its own Daily Graphic in 1889. Given the overlap in dates for the demise of the New York newspaper, and the commencement of the London one, it is possible that rights to the name were purchased by the English company.

The first issue of the Daily Graphic in London was issued on January 4 1890. It was illustrated with line drawings and woodcuts; photoengraving and halftone was considered too complex a process for newspapers.[1]

It was not connected with a different newspaper, the New York Evening Graphic, published from 1924 to 1932, and most famous for Walter Winchell's gossip column.
