From the American Heritage Publishing Archives.
Since 1949 American Heritage has been the leading magazine of American history and culture. As historian Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. wrote, "American Heritage is everything a magazine of popular history should be - elegant, lively, informative, entertaining, and intelligent." For many years, American Heritage was published in a distinctive white, hardcover format. These issues are still sought and cherished by collectors around the country. In addition to American Heritage, the company published 300 books as well as three other magazines: Horizon (which covered arts and culture), Invention & Technology (the only magazine about the history of innovation), and Americana, covering American decorative arts, painting and folk art.
Over the last half century, the staff of American Heritage Publishing accumulated one of the largest and most comprehensive archives relating to American history and culture, with thousands of photographs, illustrations, engravings, and maps. The collections are especially deep in military and political history, but include materials in thousands of other subject areas such as the Old West, antique cars, aviation, film, and theatre. Photographs include vintage prints by such renowned photographers as Paul Caponigro, Milton Greene, Jacques Lowe, Hans Namuth, Arnold Newman, Ruth Orkin, and Garry Winogrand. The archives also contains original paintings and illustrations by such artists as Don Troiani, Ed Sorel, Milton Glaser, Jules Pfeiffer, and Eric Sloane.
