Our "Yachting" collection

Yachting Magazine


Yachting was founded by Oswald Villard and first published on 1 January 1907; a year later he asked his lifelong friend, Herbert L. Stone to assume responsibility as Editor. With a short break during the First World War, for service in the US Navy and with William Atkin as Editor pro tem, Herbert Stone edited the magazine until 1952, becoming part owner in the 1930s, and remaining as Publisher and President until his death on September 27, 1955.

We are most grateful to Herbert Stone's grand-daughter for donating many of his bound, editor's copies; please see the detailed article in Canadian Yachting.
