Abstract

The Captain: A Magazine for Boys and Old Boys (1899-1924) was known for its school serials (hence its sub-title), and included works by P.G. Wodehouse, including his famous Mike stories. Published by George Newnes (whose many periodicals included Tit-Bits and the Strand), the magazine promoted athleticism and notions of ‘fair play’, and it appeared monthly, priced at six-pence. Its editor was credited as ‘the old Fag’, pointing to his credentials as one who understood public school life.
