The Maryland Gazette was originally published from 1727 to 1734 by William Parks of Annapolis, before being published by Jonas Greene from 1738 until his death in 1767 when his wife, Anne Catherine Hoof Greene, assumed published duties. The Gazette would continue to be published by the Greene family until 1909, and in 1919 was bought by The Capital, which was in turn bought by the Baltimore Sun. The Gazette supported Greene’s positions on colonial freedom and opposition to the Stamp Act, and continued being published throughout the Civil War when many other Maryland newspapers were shut down.
