ABSTRACT
This paper commemorates the initial years of the Journal of Consumer Research, from the inception of its idea in 1970 through its first twenty years of publication (1974-1994). Au unofficial history is recounted-from the perspective of JCR's founding advocates, from that of its policy hoard, and through the reflections of its first six editors. The journal's unique mission among social-science periodicals is seen as the source of both its developmental problems and its unparalleled success.
