1936: Life magazine is reborn as a photo magazine and enjoys instant success. Henry Luce, the publisher of Time and Fortune magazines, bought a humor and general interest magazine of the same name just so he could acquire the rights to the "Life" name. Luce sold Life's subscription list and features to another magazine and relaunched the publication, giving birth to the photo magazine in the United States. The first issue sold for 10 cents.
