Q:

What was shown on the cover of the November 23, 1936 issue of Life Magazine?

A:

Nov. 23, 1936 marked the release of the first issue of Life magazine, which featured a cover photograph of the Fort Peck Dam that was taken by staff photographer Margaret Bourke-White. The photograph was later used for a U.S. postage stamp in the "Celebrate the Century" series.

Life magazine began in 1883 as a humor magazine. In 1936, Henry Luce, the founder of Time magazine, bought Life and turned it into a weekly news magazine with an emphasis on photojournalism. Margaret Bourke-White was one of four female staff photographers hired by Life in 1936. She worked for the magazine for over 30 years and became the first woman photographer attached to the U.S. armed forces while covering the second world war.
