Sarah Josepha Hale, ca. 1850

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.
