Benjamin Franklin was born
January 17, 1706. During this
week each year those of us in
the Graphic Arts celebrate
Graphic Communications Week
in honor of Franklin’s
contributions to our industry.

POLITICAL LIFE AND BIRTHDAY
Ben Franklin was not only involved in the printing industry, but also had a successful political career. He acted as governor of Pennsylvania from 1785 to 1788 and represented Pennsylvania as a colony. Franklin’s loyalty to England was reflected in his politics until the Stamp Act was introduced which led to his attempt to unite the colonies against England. He was also primarily responsible for persuading France to align with the Colonies during the Revolutionary War.
