Description

Good Housekeeping is an American women's magazine first published in Massachusetts in 1885. The magazine aims "to produce and perpetuate perfection [...] as may be attained in the household" and provides its readers with recipes, health advice, and product recommendations.
In 1900, the Good Housekeeping Institute is founded, which evaluates products and recipes to study any problems homemakers might face and issue consumer alerts.
Famous writers who contribute to the magazine include Betty Friedan, whose article "Women Are People, Too" precedes her groundbreaking book The Feminine Mystique.
In 1911, Hearst Corporation purchases the magazine.
The included files only serve as an example illustration of the magazine.
