Happy 81st Birthday to us!

The first issue of Newsweek was published in 1933 and covered a wide-range of topics that… pretty much reflect the issues we’re facing today, from dog sledding in Central Park on a balmy day that reminded the author of ‘Alaska in spring time,’ to a president who may be awarded ‘extraordinary powers’ in wartime.

The magazine was founded by editor Samuel T. Williamson, and run from a Dayton, Ohio headquarters.

It cost $4/year to subscribe.
