Henry Luce (1898–1967) was an American publisher, entrepreneur, and visionary who played a significant role in shaping 20th-century journalism. Born in China to missionary parents, Luce co-founded Time magazine in 1923, pioneering the concept of weekly news summaries. This innovation revolutionized the magazine industry and set the stage for his subsequent ventures.

Luce went on to establish other influential publications, including Fortune, which focused on business and economics, and Life, a groundbreaking photojournalism magazine. These magazines became staples of American media, shaping public opinion and cultural discourse.

Beyond publishing, Luce wielded considerable political influence through his publications, advocating for American interventionism and promoting a vision of America as a global superpower during the mid-20th century. His conservative viewpoints often influenced editorial content, reflecting his staunch anti-communist stance and support for American exceptionalism.

Luce’s impact extended beyond journalism; he was a champion of cultural exchange and understanding, founding the Asia Society to foster dialogue between East and West. His legacy continues to resonate in the world of media and journalism, embodying the power of the press to shape public opinion and influence historical narratives.
