Question 730: Standing in the Garden listening to cows







Id. Connect. Explain. 



ANSWER:

The Youth's Companion Magazine


Erle Stanley Gardner - creator of Perry Mason



Connect -The name "Perry Mason" dates to creator Gardner's childhood. As a child, Gardner was a reader of the magazine Youth's Companion. The magazine (best known for producing the original Pledge of Allegiance in 1891) was published in Boston, Massachusetts, by the Perry Mason Company (renamed "Perry Mason & Co." after the founder died). When Gardner created his fictional attorney, he borrowed the name of the company which published his favorite childhood magazine.
