Gazette Premium Content Appleton museum features Time magazine covers

Associated Press Published: May 7, 2014

APPLETON, Wis. (AP) — An Appleton museum is featuring signed covers of Time magazine in a new exhibition.

The covers came from the late collector Jerry Gottleib, who from 1964 to 1974 sent a copy of the covers to the people featured on them for autographs.

More than 250 people responded to his request and the Gottleib family shared some with The Trout Museum of Art.

According to the museum, Gottleib's greatest challenges were securing signatures for covers featuring more than one person. Some of his successes included all four of the Beatles as well as the Apollo 11 astronauts.

The exhibit also features the Robert Kennedy cover designed by Roy Lichtenstein and dated two weeks before Kennedy's assassination.

The exhibit, called "Moments in TIME," will be on display through June 29.
