Working in a two-room office over a car dealership in Honesdale, Pennsylvania with a tiny band of co-workers, the Myerses created the first issue of the magazine they had long imagined. Printed in June1946, that first issue ran to 20,000 copies. Sixty years later, in June 2006, the one-billionth copy of the magazine rolled off the presses just in time for the company's 60th anniversary.
