From Wikipedia: William B. Ziff, who had been an aviator in World War I, created a new magazine, “Popular Aviation,” in August 1927, which was published by Popular Aviation Publishing Company of Chicago, Illinois. Under editor Harley W. Mitchell, it became the largest aviation magazine, with a circulation of 100,000 in 1929. The magazine's title became “Aeronautics” in June 1929 and the publishing company's name became Aeronautical Publications, Inc. The title was changed back to Popular Aviation in July 1930.
