Early 19c. edited by Willis Gaylord, uncle of Lewis and Willis Gaylord Clark.
Published by the Quaker abolitionist Benjamin Lundy. It was also for a short while (1829-30) coedited by William Lloyd Garrison. During this period it was published in Baltimore (where Frederick Douglass spent many years as a slave). Garrison soon wound up in a Baltimore prison on a slander charge. Arthur Tappan got him out by paying the fine, after which Lundy and Garrison went separate ways.
