Lapham’s Quarterly is published by the American Agora Foundation, Inc., a not-for-profit foundation dedicated to fostering an interest in, and developing an acquaintance with, history.

The American Agora Foundation was created with the purpose of funding Lapham’s Quarterly, as well as other projects that promote an understanding and appreciation of history. Lapham’s Quarterly’s unique thematic format and its incorporation of four millennia of literature, art, and discourse allow for the magazine to become part of a broader historical discussion and, additionally, to further American Agora’s own educational mission.

It is the goal of the American Agora Foundation and of Lapham’s Quarterly to add to the teaching arsenal of the educational community and to provide a rich cultural resource for enhancing the love of history for a new generation of citizens.
