About Associated Press, The AP World, 1943–2001

AP World Magazine began publication as The AP Interoffice in 1942 and by 1944 had developed from a mimeographed staff bulletin into a printed and illustrated magazine. With the January 1945 issue, it was renamed The AP World. Intended for both AP staff and member newspapers, the magazine has documented the work of AP journalists, described technological innovations in news transmission from the Speed Graphic camera to High Definition video and spotlighted coverage of major stories, such as World War II, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the Vietnam War and the Moon Landing. The magazine has also featured bureau profiles and company news, including governance and operational changes, staff achievements and historical pieces.
