Scope and Contents

The People Editorial Records contain records from offices and staff from the editorial side of the magazine, not the publishing or business side. Editorial staff represented include Cranston Jones, Lee Wohlfert, Marianne Macy, Martha Babcock, Sarah Rozen, Richard Stolley, and Dick Lemon.

Records include memoranda, correspondence, book drafts for Best of People, article research, copies of books used in Wohlfert's research, news clippings, photographs, publishing budgets, Home Box Office's (HBO)  Best of People television special script, and article drafts.


The materials within the Time Inc. Subject Files record group are organized into three series based on hierarchy of job titles with general office files at the end:

Series I. Senior Editor Cranston Jones Files on Best of People

Series II. Writer Lee Wohlfert Files

Series III. People Magazine 50th Television Anniversary Issue Files
