The Fortune Magazine Archive presents an extensive collection of the long-running business magazine dating from its very first issue in February, 1930 through December, 2000 in a comprehensive cover-to-cover format. Published monthly by Time Inc., the magazine sought to provide news and analysis of both American and, later, international business, economics, technology, and industry. Each issue featured vivid color illustrations and photographs, as well as high-quality feature articles, published at a time when most business magazines were merely black and white compendiums of statistics and figures.
The cover-to-cover format means each issue is presented in its entirety, including the front and back covers as well as all articles, photographs, illustrations and advertisements as originally published. Everything has been indexed with relevant subject terms to ensure that researchers can quickly and accurately find what they are looking for. The Fortune Magazine Archive is valuable to researchers interested in 20th-century American business and industry, as well as those interested in the history of advertising and popular culture.
