The Perfect Wife

Quite interesting find I stumbled upon recently. The Nashville Retrospect publishes reprints of long-forgotten news, articles by local historians, and remembrances by older folks in Nashville. Here below I’m sharing with you an article from 1950 in the Nashville Banner (you can find their archives here) whereby people wrote in their questions and a Mr and Mrs Kling respond. It’s quite interesting if I do say so myself. Not only does it instruct you in the ways to be a “perfect wife” but also advises you as to which professions will make a suitable husband.
