Abstract: The American Economist has a distinctive legacy in economics by being the official publication of the organization that honors academic excellence in the field, Omicron Delta Epsilon, The International Honor Society in Economics. This paper examines the history of The American Economist from its beginnings as a student-produced annual publication to a professionally produced academic journal with a global reach. During its more than 50-year run, the journal has published original works by many eminent economists, including 23 Nobel Prize winners. As one of the first journals that academic economists encounter, The American Economist continues to have a unique influence and impact on the economics profession.
