Container List

Series III: Life International, approximately 1946-1965. 2.1 Linear feet (2 boxes, 5 reels of microfilm)

Scope and Contents Note

Life International contains index cards that act as a subject cross-reference for the version of  Life magazine that was produced for audiences outside of the United States. Index cards within this series contain a subject term, a brief overview of a topic, and a date in which the topic was covered within its respective magazine. While the majority of subseries contain subjects with letters ranging from A through Z, some subseries may be missing alphabetical subject areas.  Life en Espanol includes microfilm of index cards. The microfilm does not have dates so it isn't clear if it is a duplication of the physical cards or unique material.

Arrangement Note

The materials in this series are divided into 13 subseries: Life ABC/Car (1959,1964),  Life Caribbean (1964),  Life Continent (1964),  Life DF Mexico (1964),  Life English (1959-1965),  Life en Espanol (1953-1959),  Life Europe (1961-1962),  Life Ex-Europe (1964),  Life International (1946-1958),  Life Mexico (1959, 1964),  Life Spanish (1964), and  Life Sterling (1964).

Since Life International is compromised of an amalgamation of multiple magazines across a broad geography, the materials are divided into subseries that reflect the multiple international publications that  Life published and the specific geographical areas those publications were released in. All the materials are kept in their original order and are in alphabetical order.
