Time covers 1979

In posts past, we explored exceptional Time Magazine covers from 1970, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977 and 1978. Today, in our final installment, we turn our attention to the end-of-the-decade and 1979.

Major events included China’s Teng Hsiao-ping as ‘Man of the Year,’ Iran and the US hostage crisis, the Three-Mile Island nuclear disaster and the Carter-Brezhnev SALT II Summit as well as entertainment stories on Robin Williams, Woody Allen, Diane Lane and The Who.

    1979 – the year I graduated high school ! These covers brought back a lot of memories…a pile of these were always stacked in the rear of our Social Studies class.

    I remember The Who cover very well. I think I saved it for a long while but lost/got rid of it eventually.

    Glad you enjoyed.
