Women's Magazine Archive (Collection 1)

What is it? The Women's Magazine Archive is a primary source for consumer magazines aimed at a female readership through which to interpret multiple aspects of 19th and 20th-century history and culture. Titles included in the archive, inlcuding Good Housekeeping and Ladies' Home Journal, serve as canonical records of evolving assumptions about gender roles and cultural mores. Other titles here focus on narrower topics but deliver source content for specific research areas. Parents, for example, is of particular relevance for research in the fields of children’s education, psychology, and health, as well as reflecting broader social-historical trends.

Women’s Magazine Archive Collection 1 provides access to the complete archives to the following magazines:

  • Better Homes & Gardens (1922 to 2005)
  • Chatelaine (1928 to 2005)
  • Good Housekeeping (1885 to 2005)
  • Ladies’ Home Journal (1883 to 2005)
  • Parents (1926 to 2005)
  • Redbook (1903 to 2005)
Most of these titles were published monthly and the length of the backfile ranges from 29 years to 123 years; each provides material attesting to changing social, historical and cultural trends over a period of many decades.
