Quick Reference

(1936–72, 1978–),

a weekly issued by the publishers of Time, who purchased the title of the humorous journal Life (1883–1936), presents news and feature articles mainly through photographs, with editorial standards akin to those of Time. The journal ceased publication in 1972, although a few “Special Report” issues appeared occasionally thereafter. In 1978 it was revived as a monthly with less emphasis on current news and more on personalities, although each January issue features “The Year in Pictures.”
