THE AUTHORS OF 'MYSL NARODOWA' IN 1921-1926
Languages of publication
Monographs on the national camp press during the Second Republic still require considerable supplements. This holds true in particular for 'Mysl Narodowa', which in 1921-1925 was an elitist socio-political weekly addressed to the intelligentsia and an unofficial press organ of the national camp, with which it was connected by assorted publication, financial and personal ties. During the first stage of its activity 'Mysl Narodowa' witnessed a choice of editors and a subsequent search for an ideological image under consecutive editors-in-chief: Józef Wierzejski, Ignacy Oksza Grabowski, Stanislaw Wlodek and Jan Rembielinski. From October 1925 the reorganised periodical became an authorized party organ and changed into a weekly focused on Polish culture. Questions relating to national spiritual life - national ethics, education, and the model of the state and society - replaced political accents. On 1 June 1926 'Mysl Narodowa', merged with 'Przeglad Wszechpolski', assumed the form of the official ideological and political organ of the national camp, and continued to fulfil this function until 1939. July 1926 marked the end of the essential evolution of the periodical, which consistently pursed its ideological goals until the outbreak of the Second World War. Editor-in-chief Zygmunt Wasilewski, whose personality exerted the greatest impact on the periodical's profile, supervised this process.
