American Heritage ‘rights’ purchased by Bell descendent

As I’ve often declared on this blog my fondness of the magazine American Heritage, I’m glad to learn that it is living to see another day. Edwin S. Grosvenor, great-grandson of Alexander Graham Bell, is the new majority owner of the magazine, which he’ll move from NYC to Bethesda, Maryland.

From a magazine history perspective, it’s also worth noting that Mr. Grosvenor is grandson of Gilbert Hovey Grosvenor (Bell’s son-in-law), the first editor of National Geographic magazine and who is considered, “the father of photojournalism.”
