Popular Mechanics

Posted: August 20, 2011 in Magazine

Popular Mechanics is an American magazine first published January 11, 1902 by H. H. Windsor, and has been owned since 1958 by the Hearst Corporation. There are nine international editions, including a now-defunct Latin American version that had been published for decades and a newer South African edition.

Popular Mechanics features regular sections on automotive, home, outdoors, science, and technology topics. A recurring column is “Jay Leno’s Garage” featuring observations by the famed late-night talk show host and vehicle enthusiast.

Some chief competitors of Popular Mechanics are Popular Science, Wired, and Men’s Journal.

Popular Mechanics is a subsidiary of the Hearst Corporation, which also has an ownership stake in the History Channel. A near-complete archive of Popular Mechanics issues going back to 1905 is available through Google Book Search.
