Administrative History

Henry R. Luce (hereafter HRL) directed that all his files before 1933 be thrown out when his new secretary, Corinne Thrasher, arrived and found them unmanageable, leaving a relatively small number of records in his papers prior to the 1930s. Upon his death in 1967, HRL's remaining files and those of his personal assistants were reviewed item by item and divided into records classified as personal and business. Records classified as business became part of the Time Inc. archives while those considered personal became part of the Henry R. Luce papers. In the initial division the personal papers included correspondence pertaining to HRL's outside interests and activities, family correspondence and personal correspondence with outsiders, as well as photographs and financial records. Some of his files during the division were given to the Library of Congress with copies of the more prominent records retained in his papers. The arrangement of the papers was partially determined by the needs of Robert Elson who was given the task of writing a corporate history of Time Inc. Between 1967 and early 2000s additional materials were added to the collection.

(The above note was based on information found in Series I, folder "Files and Personal Papers of HRL.")

Biographical Note

Henry Robinson Luce (hereafter HRL) was born on 3 April 1898 in Tengchow (currently Penglai), China to Presbyterian missionaries Reverend Dr. Henry Winters Luce (1868-1941) and Elizabeth Middleton Luce (1870-1948). HRL spent the first 14 years of his life in China, apart from a visit to the United States in 1906-1907. He attended Chefoo School, a British run preparatory institution in northern China. In 1912, when he was 14, HRL travelled to England to briefly study in St. Albans School, before returning to the U.S. and entering the Hotchkiss School in Lakeville, Connecticut the following year.

In 1916 HRL began attending Yale University where he served as managing editor of the Yale Daily News and actively contributed to other university publications. A member of the Yale ROTC Field Artillery Unit, he left college to train army recruits during World War I and was discharged as Second Lieutenant at the end of 1918. Returning to Yale, he graduated in 1920.

Following graduation, HRL spent a year studying history at Oxford University, coming back to the United States in 1921 to take a job as a cub reporter at the Chicago Daily News and then the Baltimore  News. HRL quit his job in 1922 to concentrate on the creation of a "news-magazine" with Briton Hadden, a classmate from Hotchkiss and Yale. Together they formed the company Time Incorporated (later changed to Time Inc.) and published the first issue of their magazine, TIME, in New York in 1923.

On 22 December 1923 HRL married Lila Ross Hotz (1899-1999), the couple having two sons: Henry Luce III in 1925 and Peter Paul Luce in 1928. After briefly moving to live in Cleveland, Ohio in 1925, along with the publishing operations of TIME, HRL moved back to New York in 1927. Following Hadden's death in 1929, HRL became the sole head of Time Inc., launching additional ventures throughout the 1930s, including FORTUNE in 1930, THE MARCH OF TIME radio series in 1931 (and short film series in 1935), and LIFE in 1936. HRL divorced Lila Hotz in 1935, marrying Clare Boothe Brokaw (1903-1987), a playwright and former managing editor of Vanity Fair, the same year.

As a prominent publisher, HRL corresponded with a large number of individuals, including politicians, educators, and businessmen. He traveled extensively, both nationally and internationally, and was frequently invited to speak before professional, academic and church groups. In the early years of World War II, as a member of the Century Group, HRL advocated providing assistance to Great Britain, envisioning an expanded global role for the United States after the conclusion of the war. His vision was laid out in his best known article "The American Century," published in LIFE in 1941.

HRL's increasing interest in politics and world affairs led to his involvement in the 1940 presidential campaign where he served as one of the driving forces promoting the candidacy of Wendell Willkie, the Republican running against Franklin D. Roosevelt. He also led a concerted campaign to provide aid to China under the aegis of the United China Relief. After the war, HRL travelled extensively throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East, advocating a tough stance against Communism. As a potent force in the Republican Party, HRL and his wife were early supporters of Dwight D. Eisenhower's candidacy for the presidency in 1952 and after the election, Clare Boothe Luce was appointed ambassador to Italy. As a result, HRL opened an office in Rome, splitting his time between Italy and the United States from 1953-1956. In 1954 he launched SPORTS ILLUSTRATED.

Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, in addition to his work at Time Inc, HRL was continuously involved in various charities related to the Presbyterian Church, Yale, and China, in addition to being a director, trustee, member, and sponsor of a large number of organizations. Becoming convinced that peace in the world could only be achieved by following the rule of law, he became a strong advocate for that concept. After marking the 40th anniversary of TIME in 1963, he retired from Time Inc. the following year. HRL continued to lecture and travel, as well as staying up-to-date with matters related to Time Inc. after his retirement until his death on 28 February 1967 in Phoenix, Arizona.

Series II. Speeches and Writings, 1916-1967 (bulk, 1930-1966). 11.05 Linear Feet

Arrangement Note

The series is organized in two subseries:

Subseries II.A. Working Files

Subseries II.B. Final Speeches and Writings

Scope and Contents Note

The series consists of working and final files of the speeches and writings produced by Henry R. Luce (hereafter HRL). Speech related materials make up the majority of the series.

Subseries II.A. Working Files, 1920-1967 (bulk, 1930-1966)

Scope and Contents Note

The subseries includes correspondence inviting HRL to speak or submit an article for publication; his responses and internal memoranda discussing what actions he should take; planning and scheduling the trip to give the speech; invitations to meet individuals unrelated to the speech located in the area to be visited; background and biographical information on individuals and organizations inviting HRL, on those attending the event, those he may meet, and information on employees working in the Time Inc. regional offices; background on the venue and events where he is scheduled to speak; arrangements for where he will be staying, and detailed itineraries.

In addition there are a large number of heavily marked early and later drafts of speeches and articles, as well as the final versions; handwritten notes; speech outlines; reference and research materials assembled to assist the writing process or to be incorporated into the article or speech; internal memoranda requesting the opinions of Time Inc. staff and their responses, comments and advice. The internal memoranda and correspondence involving logistical planning, fact checking, and advice given to HRL is sent to and received from his secretary, Corinne Thrasher, and a number of personal assistants and Time Inc. officers including Allen Grover, Russell Bourne, Emeline Nollen, C.D. Jackson, Albert L. Furth, Wes Bailey, Bernard Barnes, and John Jessup.

There are also brochures, programs, promotional materials, press releases and other printed materials from the events where HRL made the speech or that were published by the group which invited him; and responses and reactions from attendees, Time Inc. staff and members of the public who read the speech or article. Some of the speeches were sent to prominent individuals and the files include responses from professors, clergy, deans, college presidents, businessmen, publishers and editors. In addition there are letters of gratitude; requests for copies of the speech; logistics dealing with publication and distribution of speeches; mailing lists for speech distribution; and reports of a selection of comments generated by a speech or article.

The contents of any one speech file tends to vary substantially with some containing very little materials compared to others. Of note in the subseries are drafts of speeches made by HRL in late 1940-early 1941 which became the basis for his "The American Century" article in LIFE.

Arrangement Note

The subseries is arranged in chronological order, with a few exceptions, based on the final date of when a speech was given or the article published.

Series III. Notable Memoranda, 1931-1967. 2.6 Linear Feet

Arrangement Note

The series is arranged in chronological order.

Scope and Contents Note

The series consists of memoranda and correspondence which highlight the development and prominent episodes in the lives of Henry R. Luce (hereafter HRL), Time Inc., and of its various publications. The documents illustrate HRL's thinking and beliefs, as well as his relationships and interactions with Time Inc. staff and individuals outside of the company. This material appears to have been assembled as part of the research for the corporate history of Time Inc: Time Inc: The Intimate History of a Publishing Enterprise, 1923-1941 (published in 1968);  The World of Time Inc: The Intimate History of a Publishing Enterprise, 1941-1960 (published in 1973); and the beginning of  The World of Time Inc: The Intimate History of a Publishing Enterprise, 1960-1980 (published in 1986). Many of the documents found in the series are quoted from, referenced to, or used for background information throughout these books.

The contents consist mainly of multiple carbon copies (some annotated), with a lesser number of originals and copies; some are labeled "confidential" and "strictly confidential." Most were written and sent out by HRL (some have "not sent" written at the top) to the entire staff of Time Inc., staff of individual magazines, to groups and to individual editors and officers as well as to individuals outside of Time Inc. The latter include Winston Churchill, John F. Kennedy, and to other individuals where HRL is responding to complaints, and explaining his thinking on such subjects as "The American Century."

The Time Inc. staff members the memoranda are addressed to include MacLeish, Grover, Hobson, Wertenbaker, Billings, Larsen, Prentice, Jessup, Gottfried, Jackson, J. Davenport, Furth, Roy Alexander, Hedley Donovan, Thompson, Heiskell, Linel, and Paine. TIME, LIFE, FORTUNE, and SPORTS ILLUSTRATED are the main publications discussed in the memoranda. TIME International, LIFE International, LIFE Spanish, ARCHITECTURAL FORUM, and HOUSE & GARDEN are sometimes, though infrequently mentioned.

Records include early prospectus drafts for LIFE, THE MARCH OF TIME film series, and SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, as well as periodical reformulations termed a "re-thinking" and a "respectus" which serve to update the original formula of the magazines. Memoranda covers a wide variety of subjects, including managerial appointments and personnel decisions; policy decisions, fundamental attitudes, convictions and responsibilities of Time Inc; responses to controversies in the pages of its publications; editorial and promotional strategy; and questions of budgeting, advertising, and circulation.

In addition, a large number of memoranda sent by HRL contains his general thought and ideas directed at his editors and officers for discussion purposes and consists of his comments on current events; gives ideas for possible TIME covers; elaborates on major themes and subjects that he would like to be covered by Time Inc. publications; gives editorial ideas; discusses articles he is working on; and positions he believes the publications should take.
