С. 25-41.

Colonial period of American history knows the eleven names of women-printers. Two of them, Sarah Apdike and Mary Katherine Goddard – mother and daughter, produced weekly newspapers in Providence( Rhode Island), Philadelphia (Pennsylvania) and Baltimore (Maryland). Mary Goddard did very important job of printing of Declaration of Independence in 1777, because of being publisher of leading newspaper in Baltimore, where Congress moved. A year earlier she had accepted the appointment as Baltimore’s postmaster. She was one of only a handful of women to hold public appointments during the 1700s and the first woman to serve as a postmaster in the United States.
