SUMMARY: It feels to me like Tower Press published dozens of titles of very similar magazines: Aunt Jane's Sewing Circle, Popular Needlework, Stitch'n Sew, Olde Time Needlework, Old Time Crochet Patterns & Designs, Women's Circle, Women's Circle Crochet, Women's Comfort, The Good Olde Days, Pattern World - I doubt I've found them all yet. They were all printed on the cheapest newsprint paper, so it is rare to find any from the sixties, before they started adding the glossy covers, that have not darkened considerably with age. I do what I can when I get them to halt the deterioration, but I doubt they'll survive a hundred years like their antecedents. They cheerfully reprinted old patterns - often filing off the serial numbers, metaphorically speaking - unless flashing a name, like "Mary Card" would draw in readership. They relied heavily on their readership and such prodigious designers like Elizabeth Hiddleson(crochet), Myrtle Hamilton(tatting), and Ruby Hinson(quilting) for content. They filled up their pages with reader's letters and advice, their recipes and their reminiscences. If archeaologists found similar documents from ancient Egypt, they'd be over the moon with ecstacy and fervor to have a peek into the time period they were written. They would know that we had a huge surplus of empty bleach bottles, for instance, because of all the many creative uses we repurposed them for. There is one long-running letters page that I found profoundly sad - "The Missing Persons Corner". People wrote in from all over, sometimes sending photos if they had one, looking for lost loved ones. Their pleas filled a page in almost every issue. So sad.

Many of these magazines are over 50 years old now, and my collection stretches back to over 150 years. Women's magazines are largely ignored(see my rant on the Library of Congress) but they are a wealth of information on the time period they were written. I believe they are worth preserving.

I should go back through and fill out the "Words I Live By" page - it was a long slog entering all the recipes, which I keep getting a remarkable number of search requests for. It's a low priority unless someone asks for a poem a relative wrote - then I'll have to do it...
