(p.218) Chapter 12 The People Generation
Inside the Hollywood Fan Magazine
Anthony Slide
University Press of Mississippi

This chapter describes the rise of People magazine, which became the most successful personality-oriented publication on the market. While borrowing heavily from the fan magazines, it also had a major news organization, Time, Inc., as its parent company. People emphasized lightweight, trivial, picture-oriented content. The first issue appeared on February 25, 1974, with Mia Farrow on the cover and an initial print run of 1.4 million copies.
