Historical Note

In 1995 the subsidary responsible for new business development, including new magazine opportunities, Time Inc. Ventures was disbanded as a unit, and Time Inc. fully decentralized development responsibilities. Isolde Motley filled a newly created position of Development Editor designed to assist the corporate editorial department with exploring and developing new editorial ideas and projects.

Citation:

"Publishing and Editorial Management Changes Announced at Time Inc.," PR Newswire, 16 November 1995.

Scope and Contents

Isolde Motley's dead magazine proposal files include materials collected by her about possible new magazine ventures or opportunities to invest in established magazines. Some of the materials were sent to others at Time Inc. before forwarding to Motley. Records include new magazine proposals; business plans; mockups; and correspondence with those proposing the ideas. Notes from Motley are handwritten on lined loose leaf paper. Some of the folders contain more than one magazine idea. A list of the folders and their contents when transferred to the archives is in the first folder. Restricted material is primarily releases signed by those proposing the ideas.

Arrangement

Organized alphabetically based on the original arrangement with a list of contents at the front.
