Here’s a fun read from 1967 — Corey Ford‘s The Time Of Laughter. The chapter, “The Making Of A Magazine” is a terrif concise first hand account of the birth of Harold Ross’s magazine.
A key sentence from that chapter concerning the near death of the magazine after its first four months of publication:
“Only one thing saw The New Yorker through its darkest hour, and that was Ross himself.”
