THE FIRST ISSUE OF ‘’LIFE’’ PUBLISHED

See the source image

On November 23, 1936, the first issue of the pictorial magazine
Life was published, featuring a cover photo of the Fort Peck
Dam’s spillway by Margaret Bourke-White.

Life actually had its start earlier in the 20th century as a different
kind of magazine: a weekly humor publication, not unlike today’s
The New Yorker in its use of tart cartoons, humorous pieces and
cultural reporting.

When the original Life folded during the Great Depression, the
influential American publisher Henry Luce bought the name 
and re-launched the magazine as a picture-based periodical 
on this day in 1936. By this time, Luce had already enjoyed 
great success as the publisher of Time, a weekly news
magazine.
