Woman's Home Companion
WHC was one of the American women's magazines that truly helped shape our lives in the past century. It began humbly 1874 as THE HOME in Cleveland, Ohio, and through a series of changes and mergers became the LADIES' HOME COMPANION in 1886. Changing title again to WOMAN'S HOME COMPANION in 1897, it grew and became one of the most popular of the women's magazines, and lasted into the third quarter of the twentieth century. At one point its claimed circulation was four million, and dozens of famous authors wrote fiction and fact articles for the magazine. Over the years it changed format from "standard" 7" x 10" to various quarto and bedsheet sizes, and during this time its covers included a variety of styles and techniques by some of the best artists working in magazine illustration. Our historical description and profile of this magazine is online but doesn't have additional information yet.
