Descriptive Summary

Creator: Time, inc.
Title: Time Inc. Time-Life News Service Records
Dates [inclusive]: 1935-1987
Abstract: The Time-Life News Service Records documents the management and activities of Time Inc.'s news gathering branch. While the department was formally part of Time magazine for most of its history, it gathered and reported on news for other magazines as well. The collection contains records from the chiefs of correspondents and their office, records from the New York Regional Bureau Chief, financial records, personnel and biographical files assembled on employees of the Time-Life News Service, dispatches and article research material that did not end up in the  Time Research Center, and correspondence discussing masthead changes concerning Time-Life News Service staff. Due to overlap of financial management between the  Time magazine business office and Time-Life New Service's financial office, financial records include  Time budgets as well as financial documents for Time Inc. subsidiaries such as the  Washington Star.
