The Legacy of Emily Post

Founded in 1946 by Emily Post and her son Ned, The Emily Post Institute, Inc. (or EPI for short), promotes etiquette in America and around the world.  Spanning five generations, this family business maintains and evolves the standards of etiquette that Emily Post established with her seminal book Etiquette in 1922.  Manners change over time and vary depending on location and culture.  The Emily Post Institute studies this evolution and develops new manners guidelines based on core principles of honesty, respect, and consideration.

From a primary office in Burlington, Vermont, The Emily Post Institute maintains a 25 book collection, columns in Good Housekeeping, The New York Times, USA Weekend, and The Boston Globe, conducts seminars and trainings, and partners with businesses and non-profit organizations to bring etiquette and manners to a wide audience.
