History

Modern Teen, published circa 1957-1965, was one of the first magazines aimed at a teenage audience. Covers often featured popular musicians and actors such as Elvis Presley and Sandra Dee. Commenting on Modern Teen, Dig, and other publications that became popular in the 1950s, a contemporary sociologist writes "In sharp contrast with the moralistic flavor of earlier youth magazines, the post-war group is distinguished by its portrayal of hedonistic values within an essentially amoral setting: the teen years are not ones of preparation for responsible adulthood, but of play and diversion."[1] Modern Teen was published by Lou Kimzey. Chic Stone acted as Artistic Director. Dick D'Agostin served as editor of the dance column.
