Farewell to Dear Abby, an AASFE Hall of Fame inductee

The page from the 2001 AASFE conference program about that year’s Hall of Fame inductees: Pauline Friedman Phillips (Dear Abby) and Eppie Lederer (Ann Landers).

Said SFJ President Alec Harvey, managing producer of The Birmingham News, “As the author of Dear Abby, Phillips was a giant in the features world, earning one of the first places in our features hall of fame. Her advice was timeless, and her audience was huge – something the likes of which newspaper feature writers will rarely see again.”
