William T. Porter and his brothers started the Spirit of the Times in 1831. By 1839, the Spirit was the most popular sporting journal in the United States. By 1856, all of the Porter brothers were dead except William. The paper split at some point, one branch called the Spirit of the Times, the other Porter's Spirit of the Times.
