Scope and Contents Note

The Time Inc. Index Cards span from approximately 1933 to 1993 and contain groups of index cards used by Time Inc. staff for writing, searching, and cross referencing materials related to Time Inc.'s major magazines, and as directories for published books and interviews. The major publications such as Time,  Life,  Discover,  People, and  Sports Illustrated each have a subject index. The majority of index cards provide a subject term, a brief description of a topic, and a date when the topic was covered within the associated magazine. There is also a section of general subjects that is not linked to a specific publication.
