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)

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.
