In memory of Faith Baldwin

Faith Baldwin was born on October 1, 1893 in New Rochelle, NY. She died March 19, 1978 in Norwalk, Connecticut. Ms. Baldwin is the author of some 100 novels, often concentrating on women juggling career and family. She apparently began her career writing for "women's magazines" that produced romance novels as six-part serials. Her first published book was Mavis of the Green Hill published in 1921. She also wrote three books with Achmed Abdullah which were published in 1929, 1930 and 1932. In 1935 she was described as the newest of the "highly paid" women romance writers by Time magazine. Several of her books were made into films. In the early days of television, she hosted a weekly Saturday afternoon anthology series on ABC network, entitled "Faith Baldwin Romance Theater." From 1958 to 1965, she wrote a column that was published in Woman’s Day magazine called "The Open Door."
