Reimagined and reinvented, AM²C 2013 is Magazine Media’s premier conference, convening the top minds from publishing, editorial, technology and advertising, to explore the topics that matter most during these transformational times.
Today, The New Yorker is launching Currency, a new business blog. To celebrate, the staff has gathered a dozen of the magazine's most iconic articles on businesspeople from throughout the magazine’s long history. The first Profile on the list? —the Wolcott Gibbs “Time … Fortune … Life … Luce,” piece from way back in 1936. It even has a business story behind it: It’s of course about Henry Luce, the founder of TIME magazine, (written in a parodic imitation of TIME’s then-famous prose style) but it also happened to be a salvo in the epic rivalry between Luce and The New Yorker’s founding editor, Harold Ross.
