The Toledo Amateur was an amateur press publication by Wesley Hilon Porter.
Contributors included Margarite Allen, Edgar Ralph Cheney, Edna von der Heide (The Inspiration), James J. Hennessey, Dora M. Hepner, Olve G. Owen, Addie L. Porter, Mary Margaret Sisson, Emma Marie Voigt and David H. Whittier.
H. P. Lovecraft notes in Msrch 1917 issue of The United Amateur; "Toledo Amateur for October is a literary publication which reflects much credit upon its young editor, Mr. Wesley Hilon Porter, and upon the several contributors."
Later that same year, Lovecraft would begin contributing to Toledo Amateur with his satirical article, "On the Death of a Rhyming Critic" appearing in the July 1917 issue. In May 1919, his poem, Amissa Minerva would also appear, a systematic attack on modern poetry.
