Abstract

This dissertation tells the story of the Loyalist printers of Revolutionary America. They numbered 34, varying in degree from those who adhered to the crown as a matter of principle, to those who merely wanted to be on the winning side, and still others whose loyalism was due to circumstances of time and place. No attempt has been made to provide a blanket "why" for the actions of the Loyalist printers; each is treated as the individual he was and the reasons for his actions are examined on that basis.
