April 1973 National Geographic Special The Haunted West

I was wondering if there are any April 1973 National Geographic issues that have this special listed on the cover. All the April 1973 Geographics I've seen list Bushmen of the Kalahari instead. According to the National Geographic, the May 1974 issue tv pullout said The Bushmen of The Kalahari did not air in 1973 supposedly due to a strike. Another interesting fact is that the 1972-1973 season only had three specials instead of four like the previous seasons. The Wolper website does list The…See More

Question about 1959 and 1979 covers.

I was wondering if anyone knows the reason why the August 1959 issue didn't have a photo on the cover? The July issue had a cover photo. Then, in September 1959 they put a photo on the cover and had a cover photo since then. Another question I have is similar. The July 1979 issue is when they redid the cover by getting rid of the oak border. Then, the August 1979 issue reverted back to the old style. The September 1979 issue went back to the new style. Was there ever a reason for that change?See More

"Hi, In regards to the 1986 issue of the Close-up USA series. The way you could find if they did any revisioning is to check the Northwest map. Mt. St. Helens elevation was 9,677 feet or 2,950 meters before 1980. After 1980, it was reduced…"

Advertising Differences in National Geographic

Recently, I've come across some 1971 National Geographics that have different back cover ads than what were normally on those particular issues. These issues were probably overseas issues. The overseas January February April and June issues had back ads for Bank of America. The March and May issues had back ads for Minolta. The issues distributed in the USA had Toyota on the back of the January 1971 issue. Mazola for the February issue. Northwest Orient for the April issue.  Kellogg's cereals…See More
