國家地理雜誌總裁吉爾柏特‧葛洛佛納 (Gilbert H. Grosvenor) 出生於18751028

當你看著國家地理雜誌裡一張張奇特的照片時,你是否會對這個世界產生更多想像?

當這本雜誌剛開始發行時,是以文字刊物的方式來設計。但是在吉爾柏特‧葛洛佛納 (他的發音是葛洛佛—納) 在
1903年成為這本雜誌的總編輯後,各種美麗的照片就成為這本雜誌的特色之一了。在1920年時,葛洛佛納又成為發行國家地理雜誌的全美地理學會 (National Geographic Society) 的總裁。葛洛佛納在18751028日出生於土耳其,他最大的貢獻就是將國家地理雜誌改造成為全球知名的雜誌。

藉由銷售這本雜誌所賺取到的經費,全美地理學會得以持續探索不為人知的世界景觀,然後再將這些景觀介紹給數以百萬的讀者。你知道他們都到哪裡去探險嗎?


When you look at the exotic photographs in a National Geographic magazine, do they make you wonder about the world?

The magazine was a plain-covered journal when it first started. The beautiful photographs became part of the journal after Gilbert H. Grosvenor (pronounced "GROVE-nor") became editor-in-chief for the publication in 1903. In 1920, Grosvenor took on a second role as president of the National Geographic Society, which publishes the magazine. Born in Turkey on October 28, 1875, Grosvenor is credited with transforming National Geographic into a world-renowned monthly magazine.

With the money earned from the magazine, the society was able to explore previously unknown worlds, then introduce them to millions of people. Where did the society go on its explorations?
