(AP) The first woman to serve as the top editor of Life magazine has died at her home in Maine. Judith Glassman Daniels was 74.

Daniels blazed a trail for women in the publishing world. She served in senior editing positions at The Village Voice and New York magazine and at Time Inc. and Conde Naste over a career that spanned 35 years in New York. Her husband, Lee Webb, says she died from stomach cancer on Sunday.

Daniels was a Massachusetts native and a Smith College graduate. During her career she oversaw creation of a magazine for executive women called Savvy and helped to found the Women's Media Group in New York. She oversaw Life magazine's 50th anniversary.

Her family is planning an October memorial service.
