BACKGROUND

           Miss Einselen was born in Philadelphia in 1900 and was educated at Girl’s High School; not attending college.  She developed scoliosis at age 13, untreated with modern medicine, but led an active working life serving first as medical secretary to Dr. Edmund B. Piper at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital.  (She later wrote a novel based on his career entitled Take These Hands—1939, which became a best seller locally).  She began work at Curtis Publishing when in 1943 Graeme Lorimer, an editor at the Ladies Home Journal, asked her to go there as his secretary.  Within weeks she was in charge of the “Letters to the Editor” department and eventually she was appointed to head the newly instituted “Story-Discovery” Department, a position she held for almost 19 years.  She retired from LHJ in September 1962 when the magazine moved its offices from Philadelphia to New York.  She immediately took a position as a senior editor of adult books at Chilton in Philadelphia; continued her own writing and acted as a literary agent for many authors.

 

            The Temple collection was acquired by her gifts starting in 1969 and continued to her death in 1988.  And culminating in additions to her Papers from her estate and through her friend and co-editor at Chilton John Marion.  The Collection contains correspondence and publication files with more than fifty authors, memoranda and related documents from Curtis Publishing and Ladies home Journal, manuscripts and ephemera of her own writing, photographs, school memorabilia, and inscribed books from her library from her authors.
