Contributed by Brick Store Museum
Sarah Josepha Hale (1788- 1879) was editor of The Ladies' Magazine, published in Boston from 1827-1836 when she became editor of Godey's Lady's Book
She disliked "frivolous" fashion plates in magazines, so chose American illustrators and urged readers to adapt the fashions pictured to their own figures, faces, and circumstances.
