 NEW YORK, Nov. 16 ~PRNewswire~ -- Henry Muller has been named editorial director of Time Inc., it was announced today by Jason McManus, editor-in-chief of Time Warner Inc. (NYSE: TWX). Editorial director is the second highest editorial management position in the company.
 Muller, 45, was most recently managing editor of Time. Muller replaces Richard B. Stolley, 64, who will be retiring from Time Inc. McManus also announced that Jim Gaines, 45, currently managing editor and publisher of Life, will become managing editor of Time. The Muller and Gaines appointments are effective Feb. 1, 1993.
 Also retiring from the company will be Gilbert Rogin, 63, who has been serving as corporate editor. That position will not be filled.
 In announcing their retirements, McManus called Stolley and Rogin "two of the most distinguished journalists of our time." He described their legacy of more than 75 combined years of service to the company as "immense."
 Citing that each was the managing editor of two magazines with great distinction, Stolley as People's founding editor and then at Life, Rogin at Sports Illustrated and then Discover, McManus said, "That summary does not begin to measure their contributions to us all, the wisdom, warmth and humanity as well as incisive judgment and imagination they brought to everything they and we did."
 Stolley and Rogin will continue their relationship with the company as consultants.
 Stolley has been a reporter, writer, bureau chief, editor and managing editor at Time Inc. since 1953. He worked for 19 years as a reporter and editor with the weekly Life magazine and rose to assistant managing editor. In 1973 Stolley became the founding managing editor of People, joining the magazine in its planning stages. In 1982 Stolley moved over to the managing editorship of the monthly Life Stolley was appointed editorial director on Jan. 1, 1989.

After serving in the U.S. Army as a sergeant (1952-54), Rogin joined the SI editorial staff in 1955. Rogin is also a writer of fiction who has published three books. In addition, his short stories have appeared in a number of magazines, principally The New Yorker, in which he was regularly published for many years.
 As editorial director, Muller will share with Editor-in-Chief McManus the larger editorial responsibilities of all the magazines -- Time, Fortune, Life, Sports Illustrated, Money, People, Sports Illustrated for Kids and Entertainment Weekly.
 McManus said, "Henry has presided with great skill over the redesign of Time to meet the changing demands of the Information Age. He is a superb manager, articulate spokesman, and innovative editor."
 Born in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, West Germany, Henry Muller was raised and educated in Geneva, Switzerland, and San Francisco. He immigrated from Switzerland to the United States in 1953. He attended Stanford University, where he was editor of The Stanford Daily, and graduated in 1968 with a B.A. in history.
 Muller first came to Time Inc. as an intern for Life magazine in New York in the summer of 1967 and as a stringer at Stanford in 1967-68. Following a stint as a secondary school teacher in the U.S. Peace Corps in Ethiopia, he rejoined Time Inc. in 1970 as editor of f.y.i., an internal publication.

 Of Gaines, Time's new managing editor, McManus said: "He has a deserved reputation as among the most imaginative of journalists. His proven abilities to bring out the best in his staff and intuit what most engages readers are a perfect fit with the creative challenge of the new Time."
 Gaines has been managing editor of LIFE since September 1989. In October 1991, he assumed the additional responsibilities of publisher, becoming the first individual in the company's history to hold the two positions simultaneously.
