Halifax Gazette

The Halifax Gazette was published weekly in Halifax from 1752-66. The first publisher was John Bushell, who moved to Halifax from Boston in 1751, although in 1754, Richard Bulkeley, the provincial secretary, became the editor. Anthony Henry became the printer in 1758 and continued in the role until the Halifax Gazette stopped publishing in 1766. See Marie Tremaine, A Bibliography of Canadian Imprints, 1751-1800 (Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 1999), pp. 599-601. The Halifax Gazette was the first paper to be published in the region that is now known as Canada.
