TIME Magazine's 100 most influential people of the 20th century (called the "TIME 100" for short) is a list of the 20th century's most influential politicians, artists, innovators, scientists and icons, compiled by TIME Magazine. It consists of a total of 100 people, 20 each in five different groups.

The list was started with a debate at a symposium at Washington, D.C.'s Kennedy Center on February 1 1998 (participants: CBS news anchor Dan Rather, historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, former New York governor Mario Cuomo, then-political science professor Condoleezza Rice, neoconservative publisher Irving Kristol and TIME managing editor Walter Isaacson) and ultimately published on June 14 1999 in a special TIME magazine issue titled "TIME 100: Heroes & Icons of the 20th Century". Albert Einstein was recognized as the "Person of the Century".
