After Ami B. Young American, birth and death dates unknown In 1828, at the age of 15, Nathaniel Currier began an apprenticeship at the printing firm of William and John Pendleton of Boston. The Pendletons taught Currier the process of lithography, how to operate the presses and the business of printing. By 1833, John Pendleton had moved his firm to New York and sold the company to another printmaker, Mr. Stodart. Stodart and Currier were uneasy business partners and Stodart soon departed. Dartmouth College, a scene of the President’s House and various college halls, was among the first prints that the firm created. Currier later published the work under his name only as shown in this example.
