Holiday (magazine)

Holiday was an American travel magazine published from 1946 to 1977. Originally published by the Curtis Publishing Company, Holiday's circulation grew to more than one million subscribers at its height, mainly through the genius of the former advertising man, Ted Patrick, who was famous for employing the world's best writers, such as Graham Greene, and photographers, and giving them a free hand (and a generous budget) to interpret the subject separately in whatever way they wished. This had a major influence on travel writing and other magazine journalism in the English language from that time on. It also helped that there was a major growth in foreign travel after World War II.

With the magazine circulation suffering in the 1970s, Curtis sold Holiday to the publisher of Travel, a competing magazine. The two publications merged to form Travel Holiday.[1]

Another magazine titled Holiday, published by the American Automobile Association, was unrelated to this publication.
