Series VII. Time Education Program Files, 1967-1980. 6 Linear feet in 6 record cartons, 1 flat box

Biographical / Historical

The Time Education Program was a subscription service that published teaching aids for educators focusing on content within Time magazine. It was designed for and geared toward the high school level. An October 1972 issue of  FYI reports on the the program moving from Corporation Circulation Promotion to  Time Promotion. Invoices from 1979 have stamps of payment from Corporate Circulation so it isn't clear if the program stayed within  Time with corporate support or moved back to a corporate department.

Scope and Contents

Time Education Program Files include the correspondence and administrative records documenting the running of the program and the mailings sent out to subscribers.

Arrangement

Organized into three subseries:

Subseries VII.A. Correspondence
