Joseph Tinker Buckingham was an eminent New England journalist and editor, remembered for his bold style and several innovative publications. Born in Windham, Connecticut, to impoverished shoemaker Nehemiah Tinker, he was baptized Joseph Buckingham at the request of a relative. Buckingham apprenticed with a printer in his youth, and migrated to Boston, where he worked as a journalist. He next founded and edited the pioneering periodical Polyanthos, known for Buckingham's outspoken columns. Fortune eluded him, and he worked as a printer, editor, and even a schoolteacher; he later founded the New England Galaxy, the Boston Courier, and the ground-breaking literary journal, New-England Magazine.
