Pixley, who built it into a highly regarded publication. Under Pixley's stewardship it was considered "the leading literary production of the San Francisco press and was a powerful influence in State and municipal politics." became editor in 1891. Pixley sold the journal before his death in 1895 for $11,000.00. This period was seen as a low point in the Argonaut's quality.

  • The Argonaut was a newspaper based in San Francisco, California from 1878 to 1956. It was founded by Frank Somers, and soon taken over by Frank M. Pixley, who built it into a highly regarded publication. Under Pixley's stewardship it was considered "the leading literary production of the San Francisco press and was a powerful influence in State and municipal politics." The magazine was known for containing strong political Americanism combined with art and literature. Many 19th-century writers such as Ambrose Bierce, Yda Addis, and Gertrude Atherton appeared regularly in its pages. It was considered one of the most important publications in California, and it had a great deal of political influence. As a staunch Republican, Pixley used The Argonaut to support Leland Stanford and other owners of the Central Pacific Railroad. Pixley, who served as The Argonaut's editor and publisher, had been California's eighth attorney general when Stanford was governor. The journal was founded as a counterweight to Denis Kearney, an Irish-born labor leader who represented many of the Irish immigrants who worked for the railroad. Pixley, who wanted someday to become governor of California himself, was said to have handed out gold coins to sway voters. became editor in 1891. Pixley sold the journal before his death in 1895 for $11,000.00. This period was seen as a low point in the Argonaut's quality. Alfred Holman purchased the newspaper in 1907, shortly after selling all his interests in the Sacramento Union. He served as publisher and editor until 1924. The name 'Argonaut' comes from the local term for gold prospectors, argonaut.
