William Lloyd Garrison (1805-1879) published the Liberator, an abolitionist newspaper, from 1831 until 1865. He founded the New England Anti-Slavery Society in 1832. He was influenced by many of the women members of the Society who were leaders in the women's suffrage movement. After the Civil War ended in 1865, he campaigned for women's suffrage and temperance. In 1870, Garrison came to Greenfield, Massachusetts, to speak at Washington Hall on "Liberty in its Relations to Popular Government." The Gazette & Courier was the newspaper in Greenfield, Massachusetts, from July 20, 1841 until June 24, 1932. Before 1841 the newspaper's name changed quite frequently, with Gazette a frequent part of the title.
