Detailed Collection Information 

Biographical Note

Anne Frances 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.
