Ann Landers signs an index card in black ink.
Signature: "Ann/Landers", 5x3 index card. Ann Landers was the pen name of columnist Esther "Eppie" Pauline Friedman Lederer (1918-2002). Landers won a contest to write the advice column in 1955, and her witty - and sometimes acerbic - advice appeared in newspapers for 45 years. Lederer, who was married to businessman Jules Lederer, had a twin sister, Pauline "Popo" Esther Friedman Phillips, who started the competing "Dear Abby" advice column in 1956, writing under the pen name of Abigail Van Buren. The competition led to a strained relationship between the sisters, who publicly reconciled in 1964, but were not on speaking terms shortly before Lederer's death. The "Ann Landers" column was discontinued shortly after Lederer died (when the last of her original material was published); the "Dear Abby" column continues under the authorship of Phillips' daughter, Jeanne (from 1995). Lightly worn at corners. Pencil name (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Fine condition.
