    Author’s notes…

    1. “Esquire” is a courtesy title, used primarily for lawyers.
    2. McCall’s, in business since 1897, was best known for its tear-out clothing patterns. One year earlier, in 1913, McCall’s had been purchased by White Weld & Company (sewing machine manufactures) and this promo was an attempt by the new owners to expand readership). McCall’s featured the work of such skilled writers as John Steinbeck and Earnest Hemmingway, and Eleanor Roosevelt (the President’s wife) wrote a monthly advice column between the years 1949 and 1962. In 2000, the irascible Rosie O’Donnell (entertainer) took over and changed the name to Rosie’s magazine. Subsequent bickering and disputes put the magazine out of business in 2002.
