The Lady of Godey's, Sarah Josepha Hale
For nearly 50 years Sarah Josepha Hale (1788-1879) was the editor of America's most influential women's magazine. When her husband died suddenly in 1822, Sarah Hale found herself and her five children in dire need of a steady income. Friends backed the anonymous publication of a collection of her poetry, The Genius of Oblivion (1823). She also began to submit stories and poems to literary magazines and quickly gained the attention and respect of editors of the leading periodicals. Asked by a Boston publishing firm to edit the first American magazine written for women, Sarah Hale accepted the position and moved her family from New Hampshire to Boston in 1828. She applied scrupulous editorial standards to the Ladies' Magazine: she accepted only original material, solicited work from female contributors, and printed articles that she thought would "improve" her readers. In 1837, at the invitation of Louis Godey, she became the editor of Godey's Lady's Book after Godey purchased the Ladies’ Magazine. She moved to Philadelphia and made Godey’s the leading American women’s literary and fashion periodical for the following four decades.
