Published by the Oliver Ditson Company and edited by Philip Hale, Doings of the Musicians was a one year supplement to Ditson's Musical Record (Boston, 1878-1903). Combining aspects of a newspaper and a digest, Doings of the Musicians contains musical news from the United States and Europe, providing readers a panorama of musical happenings, focused on musical personalities. Correspondents throughout the United States provide local news; longer-form articles published elsewhere are excerpted. Excepting a cover photograph, the journal is comprised of text only. The journal ceased when Hale became editor of The Musical World (Boston, 1901-1904), leaving Ditson for the J. B. Millet Company.
