LAST LOOK ON THIS DAY IN 1971

Look ceased publication with its issue of October 19, 1971,
the victim of a $5 million loss in revenues in 1970 (with TV
cutting deeply into its advertising revenues), a slack economy
and rising postal rates. Circulation was at 6.5 million when it
closed.

The Look Magazine Photograph Collection was donated to
the Library of Congress and contains approximately five
million items.

Film director Stanley Kubrick was a staff photographer for
Look before starting his feature movie career.
