LIFE is dead — for the third time. From the 1940s through the early '60s, LIFE magazine was the source for who's who and what's what in America. It was first laid to rest in 1972. It was revived from 1978 to 2000 and again in 2004. Declines in the newspaper business are blamed for the latest demise.

Life is dead. That's today's last word in business. From the 1940s through the early 60s, Life magazine was the source for who's who and what's what in America. It's the third time Time Inc. has decided Life, as we know it, is over. The magazine was first laid to rest in 1972. It was revived from 1978 to 2000, and it got a new lease in 2004. Declines in the newspaper business are blamed for Life's latest life.
