Join the Laurens Genealogy Chapter and the South Carolina Humanities Council for a  lecture and book signing by Professor Patricia G. McNeely towards her new book – “Elizabeth & Ann Timothy:   America’s First Female Journalists in the Colonial and Revolutionary Times”.

 

Professor Patricia Gantt McNeely is a 1960 Furman Graduate and holds the honor of the Eleanor M. and R. Frank Mundy Distinguished Professor Emerita at the University of South Carolina. During her professional career and before joining the USC faculty, she was as Award-winning Reporter and Editor for The Greenville News, The Columbia Record and The State Newspapers.          

 

Her new illustrated book tells the story of Elizabeth Timothy, who was Benjamin Franklin’s partner and America’s first female newspaper Publisher and Editor. And, her daughter-in-law, Ann Timothy, who rescued the family newspaper business after the Revolutionary War.  Although Elizabeth and Ann Timothy had to operate behind the scenes, they were the force behind South Carolina’s earliest and most powerful newspaper for most of the 18th century.
