MAGAZINE PUBLISHED ON THIS DAY IN 1883

Newspaper publisher Cyrus Curtis included a column for women in the "Tribune
and Farmer" which he had started in 1879. His wife, Louisa Knapp Curtis did not
think his women’s column was very good, and so she took it over and made it
popular enough to expand at first to a full-page and eventually to a monthly
supplement. This supplement became the Ladies Home Journal and Practical Housekeeper.
