A sign of the TIMES




2017 Time Magazine "Person of the Year" Cover 



I subscribed to Time Magazine for many years, probably 20 or 25 years.  At home we used to get National Geographic, Sunset Magazine and Time; I was used to reading it at home growing up.  

I'm always interested in the end of the year edition and cover when the Time selects the Person of the Year. 

The criteria for selection ..... Person of the Year (called Man of the Year or Woman of the Year until 1999)[1] is an annual issue of the United States news magazine Time that features and profiles a person, a group, an idea, or an object that "for better or for worse... has done the most to influence the events of the year".



Some notables on the Time cover: 

1927 Charles Lindberg was the first cover with Man of the Year 

1936 Wallis Simpson, was the first Woman of the Year

1938 Adolf Hitler 

1952 Queen Elizabeth 

1963 Martin Luther King 

1982 The Computer 

1986 Corazon Aquino 

1991 Ted Turner 

2010 Mark Zuckerberg 

2013 Pope Francis

2014 Ebola Fighters 

2017 The Silencer Breakers 


Over the years I saved a few of my Time Magazine editions; why I've kept them this long, I'm not sure. I got rid of almost all my books when I moved to Florida and for some reason the small box with the Time Magazines did not get thrown away.  Perhaps that is why, because the box is not big and does not take up much room.  

I'm not sure why I saved these and not others, the oldest is from 1995.
