Good Housekeeping. A Family Journal, Conducted in the Interest of the Higher Life of the Household. Initially, an undistinguished and drab semimonthly family magazine, it began to thrive after a change in editorship in 1898, with improved management, appearance and content. After its acquisition in 1911 by William Randolph Hearst, by employing top-rate serial fiction, important non-fiction and innovative marketing, it evolved into one of the twentieth century’s most important and widely read ladies’ magazines. Many covers in the teens and twenties are illustrated by Jesse Wilcox Smith
