Needed: Past Issues of Weatherwise Magazine

| January 12, 2010 @ 2:04 pm | 8 Replies

For several years, I have been collecting Weatherwise magazine, the wonderful periodical started by my hero David Ludlum in 1948. I am down to needing just over 50 issues.

Perhaps you have some dusty copies in your attic, know a weather fan who might have some of these copies, or know of another source, I would be very pleased to buy these copies or even entire collections. Email me at

    Forgot to mention that you are welcome to any that you need along with free S&H Green Stamps. Howsomever, I can’t get rid of some historic LIFE Magazines and history-packed issues of TIME and U.S. News & World Report

  5. Wayne In Georgia says:

    Hey J.B. As a big history buff there were two separate either Life or Look magazines I had saved when I was a kid around 12 years old. They were lost when my folks moved it FLA in 1970. One was entitled “What If The South Had Won the Civil War”. The second was entitled “What If The Axis Would Had Won WWII”. Both circa 1960 (about). To bad all my classes weren’t history classes, my grades would have been much better. I would like to have said LOL at the end of the last sentence but it’s the truth!

  6. B Sperlin says:

    While I’ve subscribed since I was a kid in the ’50s the old ones have long since been thrown away. I’m sure I have ones from the 90s, however. What are you willing to pay for mailing them and some extra for the effort?

  7. Bill Murray says:

    Dear B Sperlin:

    How about $5 each for any from the 1989-2001 that you have that I need? Plus postage in a USPS Priority Mail box?

    Let me know!
