American Heritage relaunch

Nearing its 70th anniversary, the magazine was relaunched in digital format for 72,000 subscribers.

In 1958, my father was honored to join the staff of American Heritage, one of America’s most revered magazines, eventually becoming its Managing Editor and helping many historians strengthen their writing.
As a high school librarian, I am so pleased about your efforts to save American Heritage.  I have always recommended it to our American History students for research purposes. The magazine serves a real need in education.

American Heritage, the beloved, 68-year-old magazine of history, returns to regular publication on our Nation’s Birthday, July 4, 2017.

Edwin Grosvenor and the largely volunteer staff of American Heritage Magazine are pleased to announce the digital publication of a new issue on July 4, 2017, our Nation’s birthday, several years after the magazine was forced to suspend print publication during the recession.

More than 600 donors chipped in to help fund the relaunch of the magazine.

I recently picked up a 1961 issue of American Heritage and realized the sign-up card bound into it for new subscribers had the same price ($15.00) that we were able to charge in 2012, more than a half century later.

We hope you enjoy our work.

Please support this magazine of trusted historical writing, now in its 75th year, and the volunteers that sustain it with a donation to American Heritage.
