Publisher Curtis Publishing Company
Publisher Details The Ladies' Home Journal arose from a popular double-page supplement in the American magazine Tribune and Farmer titled Women at Home. Women at Home was written by Louisa Knapp Curtis, wife of the magazine's publisher Cyrus H. K. Curtis. After a year it became an independent publication with Knapp as editor for the first six years. Its original name was The Ladies Home Journal and Practical Housekeeper. It rapidly became the leading American magazine of its type, reaching a circulation of more than one million copies in ten years. Edward W. Bok took over the editorship in late 1889 until 1919. Among features he introduced was the popular Ruth Ashmore advice column written by Isabel Mallon. During World War II, it was a particularly favored venue of the government for messages intended for housewives. It is now printed quarterly as a special interest publication.
