Etiquette Experts Since 1922
Emily Post, romance and adventure novelist, socialite, mother and wife, wrote the ultimate manners book, Etiquette: The Blue Book of Social Usage, in 1922. Etiquette was an instant bestseller, and the phrase "according to Emily Post" soon entered our language as the last word on the subject of social conduct. Emily, who as a girl had been taught that well-bred women should not work, was suddenly a pioneering American career woman. Her numerous books, a syndicated newspaper column, and a regular network radio program made Emily Post a figure of national stature and importance throughout the rest of her life.
Emily?s commitment to teaching the importance of everyday etiquette?what she called "an innate sense of consideration for others and respect for self"?continues through the Emily Post Institute. The Emily Post Institute was created in 1946 to promote and study etiquette in America and is run today by third generation family members: Peggy Post, Cindy Post Senning and Peter Post. The work of the Institute includes a dozen books on etiquette, business etiquette seminars, manners classes for children, monthly magazine columns in Good Housekeeping, Parents and Men?s Health; web content on the WeddingChannel.com; and the Web site www.emilypost.com. The Posts conduct hundreds of speeches, seminars and media interviews annually and have appeared on programs including "Dr. Phil," "Today," "Live with Regis & Kelly," "The View," "Good Morning, America," "Oprah," and "The Early Show."
