Ladies’ Home Journal: One of the Leading Women’s American Magazines of the 20th Century

Ladies’ Home Journal was an American magazine last published by the Meredith Corporation. It was first published on February 16, 1883, and eventually became one of the leading women’s magazines of the 20th century in the United States. In 1891, it was published in Philadelphia by the Curtis Publishing Company. In 1903, it was the first American magazine to reach one million subscribers.

In the late 20th century, changing tastes and competition from television caused it to lose circulation. Sales of the magazine ensued as the publishing company struggled. On April 24, 2014, Meredith announced it would stop publishing the magazine as a monthly with the July issue, stating it was “transitioning Ladies’ Home Journal to a special interest publication”. It was then available quarterly on newsstands only, though its website remained in operation. The last issue was published in 2016.

Ladies’ Home Journal was one of the Seven Sisters, as a group of women’s service magazines were known. The name was derived from the Greek myth of the “seven sisters”, also known as the Pleiades. Here below is a set of vintage photos that shows covers of Ladies’ Home Journal magazine in the 1930s.
