Series V. Advertising Copy Acceptance Files, 1946-1975. 0.35 Linear feet in 3 record cartons

Historical Note

While the Advertising Copy Acceptance department is believed to have existed since the beginning of Life, it is unclear which department it resided in. The first time that the department is listed in the department heads list for Time Inc. is in 1964. Prior this point, the department could have been part of Advertising Sales or the department known as Makeup and Advertising Records which only appeared in the department heads list from 1960 to 1962.

Scope and Contents

The Advertising Copy Acceptance Files covers the period of 1946 to 1975 and focuses editing and approving the text that would appear in ads featured in Life. Included in this series are clippings and correspondence. The correspondence discusses the use of ads, the text to be included in ads, complaints about ads, and changes to be made to ads.
