 Life is an American
magazine that published interviews, essays, cartoons, and photos. At one point it sold more than 13.5 million copies a week; today Life is distributed as a free supplement in major U.S. newspapers. It was born in the early 1880s as a humor magazine and sold well during the late 1930s. In the years following World War II, Life was so popular that President Harry S. Truman, Sir Winston Churchill, and Gen. Douglas MacArthur all serialized their memoirs in its pages.

Life was the first all-photography U.S. news magazine and dominated the market for more than forty years. Perhaps one of the best-known pictures printed in the magazine was Alfred Eisenstaedtís shot of a nurse in a sailorís arms, snapped on August 27, 1945, as they celebrated Victory Over Japan Day in New York City. The magazineís place in the history of photojournalism is considered its most important contribution to publishing.

What we wanted to show is the issues that had anything that related to Walt or the Disney company in the early years.
