3-29-10: Mary Katherine Goddard: Postmistress, Printer, Revolutionary.

March 26, 2010 at 3:45 pm Leave a comment

Many of the names associated with the Declaration of Independence–John Hancock, Samuel Adams, Samuel Chase—are household names. Another one—Mary Katherine Goddard—is probably not. But Goddard played a central role in this foundational American document—she printed it. At the time she was living in Baltimore and was in fact Baltimore’s Postmistress. Mindy Belloff, an artist who runs Intima Press in New York City, has spent a year recreating Mary Katherine Goddard’s printing of the Declaration of Independence. She joins Sheilah from the Argot Studios in New York.

Mindy Belloff will be speaking on July 3rd at the Maryland Historical Society “On the Making of the Goddard Broadside,” as part of the July 4th celebrations.  The original Goddard Declaration will be on display at that time.
