In the summer of 1933, seven women from Boston’s North Shore met to establish an organization dedicated to the study of herbs. With their sights set on the future, they ambitiously called themselves The Herb Society of America. As their membership grew, they created a small publication titled The Herbarist. The first issue, published in 1935, contained well-researched and informative articles written by the founders and the organization’s first members. As with The Herbarist, the founders strived for excellence in everything they did, and worked hard to ensure The Society would remain relevant in an ever-changing world. Now, more than eighty years later, their little group has a membership reaching far beyond the boundaries of Massachusetts, and their publication, having grown in both size and stature, can be found on the shelves of some of the world’s most prestigious horticultural libraries. The Herb Society of America is proud to reproduce the first five issues of The Herbarist in their entirety. Readers of today, used to seeing glossy magazine formats or online imagery, will be enchanted by the hand-drawn, black and white advertisements for herb-related businesses. While those enterprises are surely long one, the articles remain timeless and relevant, just as the founders intended.
