The Inlander is a literary magazine published by students at the University of Michigan, founded by the Literary Class of 1891. John Dewey and Fred Newton Scott were the initial faculty advisors.


The aim of the Inlander, as stated in the inaugural issue, was not to limit its articles "to subjects having only local color, nor limit the range of its contributions to University life." Dewey used the new journal as a forum for social commentary, contributing several articles and an unsigned column called "The Angle of Reflection."
