Hearst's American Weekly Cover Index Part VII: 1941 - 1945



These years are the last hurrah for covers I consider to be eligible for Stripper's Guide. Russell Patterson's Flossy Frills covers and the last Fish series close us out. The final period that I indexed, 1941 through 1951, concentrates mostly on pin-up covers. Henry Clive, Willy Pogany and David Wright become by far the most often seen contributors.

A big change to the section comes with 1944. The American Weekly changes from broadsheet to tabloid format.

Some notes on the listings:
* when you see a "#", that means that the cover is part of a numbered series and the number is given on the cover. Sometimes I remembered to write that down, sometimes I didn't so its catch-as-catch-can. If a series cover explicitly states that it is the first or final installment and its not obvious from the surrounding dates, I sometimes note that as "(start)" or "(end)".

* when I say "(story illo) that means that the cover is illustrating a text story in the magazine.

* I don't make guesses about covers I haven't seen. Therefore, even if I have one missing issue between installment 2 and 4 of a series, I resist the urge to assume what may be obvious.

* When a cover is descibed as, say, "Famous Fishes (Herring)", that means that the cover is part of a series titled Famous Fishes, and this particular cover depicts the herring.
