NEW YORK (AP) - Time Inc. is donating its vast archive including thousands of file folders and a 1937 Oscar to the New-York Historical Society as it prepares to move to new offices in lower Manhattan.

The New York Times reports (https://nyti.ms/1LUIBjQ ) that the first 1,200 cartons holding the archive were trucked from a loading dock at Time’s midtown headquarters on Wednesday.

The collection traces the history of Time, Life, Fortune, Sports Illustrated, People and other magazines as well as the “March of Time” radio and newsreel series.

Michael T. Ryan, director of the historical society’s library, calls the archive “the 20th century in a few thousand boxes.”

The collection is going to a warehouse in Putnam County. Some items will eventually go on display at the historical society on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
