Biographical / Historical:
"Soap operas" became a staple of popular entertainment in the early twentieth century. The term "soap opera" was coined because many of the episodic drama programs were sponsored by various soap companies. Beginning on radio and then eventually migrating to television, soap operas filled an apparently insatiable need for the public to vicariously live out the lives of others on a daily basis. Procter and Gamble was one of the more prominent sponsors of soap operas. With the increased interest in soap operas came increased interest in the actors who played in them. By the 1970s, many magazines devoted exclusively to soap operas and soap opera actors proliferated, Daytime TV magazine was one of these publications.
