1955: Esther "Eppie" Lederer replaces the late Ruth Crowley as the writer of the "Ask Ann Landers" syndicated advice column. Lederer's first column opens with a letter from a "Non-Eligible Bachelor," who despaired of getting married. Her advice was "You're a big boy now... don't let spite ruin your life."
