By spring , Hugh Hefner—a University of Illinois psychology graduate who had worked in Chicago for Esquire magazine writing promotional copy; Publisher's Development Corporation in sales and marketing; and Children's Activities magazine as circulation promotions manager  —had planned out the elements of his own magazine, that he would call Stag Party.
