Exhibition Label:
The daughter of a well-heeled, socially prominent New York family, Emily Post wrote a little book about etiquette in 1922. Titled Etiquette: In Society, in Business, in Politics and at Home, the book was hugely successful and established its author as the leading authority on socially correct behavior. Often quoted as saying "nothing is less important than which fork you use," Post focused on common sense and consideration for others where behavior was concerned. Her recommendations governing protocol proved so valuable that the Washington diplomatic corps adopted them as uniform code. Although Post felt that her book and its subsequent revisions were quite thorough, readers began requesting further advice on various topics, including appropriate decorum when visiting "a gentleman friend in jail." Post's success led to a radio show and a syndicated newspaper column that was carried in more than 200 newspapers.
