Bartholomew Green

Green, Bartholomew, 1666–1732, early American printer, b. Cambridge, Mass.; the son of Samuel Green. He inherited his father's press in Cambridge in 1692 and moved it to Boston. He had the patronage of the government and of Harvard and became the foremost printer in New England. Except for four years Green printed the Boston News-Letter, the first American newspaper, from its inception in 1704 until his death. In 1722 he became its publisher also. His son-in-law, John Draper, succeeded to the News-Letter.
