Conceived in 1932 by George Jean Nathan and Ernest Boyd, the paper offered its first issue in November 1932, continued monthly publication until October 1936, then lingered on as a bimonthly for another half year before folding.

The daily entries center on the author's physical state, the effect of different medications on his body, his inability to do any sustained creative 14 American Diaries work, and his shrinking funds.
