John Henry Bufford

Birth: 1810

Death:1870

J.H. Bufford (1810-1870) founded one of the longest-lived and most prolific of the early American lithographic firms. After apprenticing from 1829-34 at Pendleton’s Lithography in Boston, he established his own business in New York City, but in 1840 marriage and opportunity brought him back to Boston.

By 1845 he was once again running a firm under his own name, acting as lithographer, printer and/or publisher on everything from job printing to portraits to city views and maps, and continued to do so until his death in 1870. His sons continued in the lithographic business until the 1890s.
