Click through Recent archives to the left or use the calendar to the right to find columns from specific dates. Below the calendar is a Browse by Month box. Searching for a specific date does not yield original publishing dates however.

Ann Landers’ advice column ran from 1943 to 2002. Ann Landers is, in fact, a pen name. The column was originally written by Ruth Crowley, who wrote it for a total of nine years. Esther Lederer took over its authorship in October of 1955. After her death in 2002, the column ended per her wishes.
