RG 1. Time Inc. Subject Files (1889-2015)

Scope and Contents Note

The Subject Files document the history of Time Inc. as an organization and have information on each publication and many departments at Time Inc. The Time Inc. Archives originally assembled and arranged the Subject Files for use by writers and researchers working on three authorized volumes of Time Inc. history. This record group contains primary documents from throughout the company and contains the majority of early records. Folder titles that repeat, especially for the publications, include corporate, editorial, and publishing. Corporate covers the acquisition and sale of entities as well as contracts and agreements between organizations, negotiations, board meetings, and other similar business relations. Editorial or Edit relates to the work being done by correspondents, reporters, and researchers. Publishing includes everything from advertising and promotion to production and circulation.

Additional records on the divisions, departments and offices at Time Inc. are in Time Inc. Reference Files, MS 3009-RG 3.
