Google Books has published the entire run of the most famous incarnation of LIFE magazine -- almost 1,900 issues running from 1936 to 1972.
Google Books offers one feature that makes its LIFE archive infinitely more useful than microfilm could ever be: full-text searching of the magazine’s entire history.
You'll be able to find and read Leonard McCombe’s iconic cover and photo essay on a Texas Cowboy, and Richard Meryman's famous last interview with Marilyn Monroe. You can find a 1968 cover story on Georgia O'Keeffe, and much more!
So take a look, and see what was going on in the world the week you were born!
