New Resource: Liberty Magazine: A Weekly for Everybody (1924-1950)

Liberty: A Weekly for Everybody was founded in 1924 by Joseph Patterson, publisher of the New York Daily News and Robert McCormick, publisher of the Chicago Tribune and often regarded as the world's greatest publisher. From its inception, they set out to make the magazine more topical, daring and exciting than any competitors. Information was presented in a style heavily influenced by the emerging motion picture industry and focused on the most sensational and popular issues.

The magazine flourished when illustrated magazines were the most important form of mass entertainment. This was an era of unique creativity and growing involvement in world affairs. During the following 26 years the magazine charted the moods, attitudes, lifestyles, fads, and fortunes of middle America through its three most significant decades.

The magazine's ongoing circulation of more than 3 million was founded on the high quality and originality of its art, stories, and other features.

Liberty represents far more than the original "Weekly for Everybody" and a slice of Americana; it opens a unique and permanent perspective on a nation's daily life, interests and values during a most vital and extraordinary period.
