ProQuest is Digitizing Entire Harper’s Bazaar Archive, 148 Years of Content Will Be Available
ProQuest is creating the first digital archive of Harper’s Bazaar, spanning 1867 through the current issue.
Accessible later this year on the ProQuest platform, the Harper’s Bazaar Archive will be cross-searchable along with the Vogue and Women’s Wear Daily [two other publications whose archives ProQuest has digitized].
Launched in 1867, Harper’s Bazaar was America’s first fashion magazine, home to such style icons as Diana Vreeland, Carmel Snow and Alexey Brodovitch. Its pages chronicle the evolution of American style and art, featuring photographers such as Richard Avedon, Diane Arbus, Man Ray and Patrick Demarchelier, and artists such as Andy Warhol. The archive makes this chronicle easy to explore by capturing every edition cover-to-cover, from the first issue to the present, and preserving the material in its original context in fully searchable, high-resolution images.
