Sylvia Porter (1913-1991) was the nation's first personal finance columnist and one of the most admired women of the twentieth century. Lucht traces Porter's professional trajectory, identifying her career strategies and exploring the role of gender in her creation of a once-unique, now-ubiquitous form of journalism. A pioneer for both male and female journalists, Porter established a genre of newspaper writing that would last into the twenty-first century while carving a space for women in what had been an almost exclusively male field.
