American Home was a monthly magazine published from October 1928 to February 1978. It was a continuation of the magazine Garden & Home Builder. It was published by Doubleday Doran & Company. William Herbert Eaton became publisher in 1932 and bought the magazine in 1935, forming American Home Publishing Company until the magazine was sold in 1958 to Curtis Publishing. Curtis sold the magazine in 1968 to Downe Communications. John Mack Carter purchased it in 1973, and it was acquired in late 1975 by the Charter Company. They installed Leda Sanford as president, publisher, and editor-in-chief in 1975. She was the first female publisher of a national American magazine. The last issue was February 1978, and the staff was merged with the Charter magazine Redbook.
