History

Founded in 1900 by the American Museum of Natural History, Natural History was first titled, The American Museum Journal. Since 2002, the magazine is published by Natural History Magazine headed by Charles Edward Harris. There are 10 issues published annually.

Since its founding, Natural History has chronicled the major expeditions and research findings by curators at the American Museum of Natural History and at other natural history museums and science centers. Stephen Jay Gould's column, "This View of Life," was a regular feature of the magazine from 1974 until he retired the column in 2001. Other regular columnists and contributing authors include Neil deGrasse Tyson, Jared Diamond, Richard Dawkins, Norman D. Newell, and Thomas Nicholson.
