Life, Weekly (1936-1972)

In 1936, Henry R. Luce reinvented Life as a photojournalism magazine, and owned by Time Warner. The publication was a mammoth success. The During the magazine's heyday - roughly from its launch until the early 1960s - Life was the most influential and popular magazine in America, with tens of millions of subscribers and readers. Its impact on American public opinion, especially among the exploding suburban middle class in the U.S, was almost incalculable.

Life's original mission was "to see Life; see the world." The magazine has published some of the most iconic images of events in the United States and the world. Scores of talented photographers were employed to take the most original and unique views on the world. Life also produced many excellent science serials such as "The World We Live In" and "The Epic of Man".

Life was published weekly until dwindling circulations for magazines as a whole, coupled with rising advertising rates, caused the magazine to print its final weekly issue on December 29, 1972, (its annual "The Year in Pictures" edition).
