For the final story in our series, "Last Rites: Death and Remembrance in Maryland," we turn to Annapolis, and wind back the clock two-and-a-half centuries. That was when Jonas Green was the official printer of the colony of Maryland. Much has been written about him and his work -- but only recently has anyone given any attention to his wife, Anna Catherine Green, who became one of the first women printer-publishers in colonial America. WYPR’s Sam Greenspan brings us this story as told to him by an archeologist, a descendant and some local history buffs.
“Last Rites,” was made possible by a grant from the Maryland Humanities Council, through support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this series do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities or the Maryland Humanities Council.
