MAGAZINES LAST ISSUE ON THIS DAY IN 1957

Collier’s magazine, founded in 1888 by Peter Fenelon Collier, was initially launched
as Collier’s Once a Week, then changed in 1895 to Collier’s Weekly: An Illustrated Journal, and finally shortened in 1942 to simply Collier’s. The magazine ceased publication with the January 4, 1957 issue, though a brief, failed attempt was
made to revive the Collier’s name with a new magazine in 2012.

 
Peter Fenelon Collier (December 12, 1849 – April 23, 1909)

SCIENTIST BORN ON THIS DAY IN 1643


Sir Isaac Newton (January 4, 1643 – March 31, 1727) 

Physicist and mathematician Isaac Newton became one of the most
influential scientist of all time for formulating the three basic laws of
motion and the law of universal gravitation. He also built the first
practical reflecting telescope. His mother wanted him to be a farmer,
but the headmaster of King’s School in Lincolnshire, England, Henry
Stokes, convinced her to let him complete his education.


Newton created and developed the first color wheel.
