Biographical Note

Gilbert "Gil" Rogin started at Time Inc. in 1955 as Sports Illustrated newsmarker at the clipping desk. He worked his way up at  Sports Illustrated becoming the Managing Editor in 1982. In 1983, Rogin briefly held a corporate editorial position as a special assistant to Editor-in-Chief Henry Grunwald. This may have been part of the rotating program to give various managing editors experience in the corporate editorial office.

While the folder list transferring these files titles them as "Personnel," they are not human resources files, but files containing materials to and from staff organized by correspondent. Some folders seem to contain materials that Rogin collected over time, not just while he was Corporate Editor. Topics include corridor exhibits; hiring bonuses; program evaluations; new magazine progress reports; and staff changes.
