The Sky Digital Collection 1936-1941
Sky & Telescope magazine began as the union of two magazines published during the 1930s and early 40s: The Sky and The Telescope. The Sky was founded at the Hayden Planetarium in New York City, and the first issue was printed in 1935. It concentrated on astronomical information for the amateurs of the day: observing, telescope making, star lore, and more, in ways that now look both strange and familiar. It became an independent publication under S&T founder Charles Federer in 1939. The early years of S&T look a lot like the later issues of The Sky. The DVD archive consists of all 60 issues of The Sky.
