D Magazine is the foremost online magazine in Dallas. It gives authoritative recommendations, telling stories that connect people to their community, and providing information to help people make the most out of living in Dallas/Fort Worth.
D Magazine was founded in 1974 by two University of Texas graduates, Wick Allison and Jim Atkinson. Both had a vision of giving Dallas an independent city magazine with an impact that would serve readers' interests. They developed their concept after-hours while Allison, a Dallas native, attended graduate school at Southern Methodist University and Atkinson reported on KERA's daily Newsroom program. Their vision was backed financially by young Dallas business people who shared their belief in the need for a strong city magazine.
What was merely an idea, however, became a reality when Stanley Marcus, the legendary retailer, sent a letter to his 200,000 Neiman Marcus cardholders in the Dallas area recommending they subscribe to the as-yet-unpublished new magazine. In October of 1974, the new magazine debuted with the then-shocking cover story on "Power in Dallas: Who Holds the Cards," an analysis of the fabled Dallas establishment and the interlocking corporate directorships by which they managed the city's business. Not surprisingly, the issue was a new day for Dallas journalism. It sold out on local newsstands.
